Local Reviews

Nothing really unique. Ive lived here all my life. Not much to do in this city like other bigger cities.

I like that I know most if the neighbors and they are friendly. They will help you with anything you need done.

I don't think there's much unique about my neighborhood other than we live right near a major train hub. my favorite local business is the barber/salon down the street because they're friendly and reliable. I like walking my son to school and taking him to the local spray park in the summertime.

I'm not afraid to let the kids play in the yard. There are other kids in the neighborhood. Center of town is within walking distance. Park close too.

I like that the cost of living is low. I also like that nobody bothers you when you want to be left alone.

I love how quiet and friendly my neighborhood is, it is safe an easy to access with groceries.. It is really lovely and the weather is great.
