Local Reviews

It's a quiet neighborhood. Near some small stores and gas stations which make it easier to live near. Close to downtown.

I enjoy walking in our area because it's safe. I enjoy seeing my neighbors from time to time. I am close to grocery stores.

It's awesome, I live close to downtown. Whenever I want too I can walk there and eat out. Plus the shopping is great.

There is nothing unique. It's quite and my closest neighbor is a cow. Town is only 5 mins away. There is a small shopping center within walking distance along with a daycare.

Neighborhood is only about a mile from the mall and restaurants. The surrounding neighborhood has some very unique homes

Adjusting to a smaller number of restaurants isn't easy. I just prefer driving through and returning home
