Local Reviews

It's cute! There's lots of nice bars and restaurants. I like that there's a lot of small parks. I would like some more stores and corner stores they aren't just bars

The older people still know each other. Yuppies are kinda ignorant and rude. We usually go to malls or breakfast

Amazing local businesses. Everyone is friendly. You often see people you know. A lot of very artistic and innovative people live in the area. There's a real sense of community.

There are many restaurants and bars with good variety. There is art culture and entertainment. I like going to brunch with friends then spending time in one of the few reminaingbparks.

I like going to the restaurant down the street because they have good specials. I also like walking down the Main Street for all of those stores
