Local Reviews

I like how close my neighborhood is to everything I need. I work in downtown Austin and I don't sit in a lot of traffic to go to work.

I like the area which is centrally located. It is not more than 30 minutes from shopping areas, restaurants, and recreational areas.

Beautiful RV resort with helpful staff. Close to stores & restaurants. Many outdoor activities. Easy access to major state highway. 2 large dog parks. Daily trash pick-up. Recycling bin available. Very clean & modern laundry/shower facility

Very accessible to hospital, schools, shopping venues, major freeways, yet very private. A mix of the younger and older groups. A community that cares for each other when needed

What is unique is that the neighorhiid is fairly new with large houses. It is very well kept up because of the rule & regulations. It is not far from grocery and other businesses. Not very many restaurants near by.

There a lots of bars. The breweries are good. There is plenty of restaurants. The restaurant are really good and tasty but can be expensive.
