Small town feel with friendly neighbors. Plenty of stores and restaurants nearby. And quick to get anywhere you want to be.

We are out of the city and everything is still close by.walmart and the Dollar general store is near by and our bowling alley we use.

Like the overall quite well kept lawns and nice neighbors with the whole family and the quality of the product and the

I like that the residents in my neighborhood keep their properties up. I also appreciate that my neighbors are fairly quiet and respectful of others.
