Local Reviews

The neighborhood's good neighborhood has a lot of things to do around it it's only within a short drive and people were in general good people who are coming to each other kinder than another area

I like the people. Mu dog likes the walks. Easy to go places due to public transportation and highways close by.

Nothing really unique. We have a nice park and can walk to bus stops.we just need sidewalks. We have a few pizza places, too

I like that my neighborhood is nearby to grocery stores. Also, I like that my neighborhood is near schools.

I live in a very quaint and quiet neighborhood. There is a shopping plaza 4 blocks away and there are bus stops nearby.

The neighbors ate nice. Grocery stores are nearby. We are also close to the city and malls, if it weren't for the taxes, I World say it's perfect
