Local Reviews

Again, I just don't have anything to contribute here. My neighborhood contains my house, that's all I care about.

My family is here is the main reason. We would like to move somewhere warmer but this place does have its perks.

Very close to shops but still quiet. Most people know their neighbors right next to them. There's a small park nearby.

close to everything, we can walk to almost all essentials, we love going for walks as a family. our favorite local restraunt is lupitas.

Presence of wildlife including foxes, deer, occassional black bear and numerous opossums, raccoons and skunks plus all sorts of birds

My neighborhood is close to a college and downtown. There are lots of local parks with nice trees and playgrounds.
