Local Reviews

Everyone has lived here a long time. Neighbors are friendly and helpful. Everyone looks out for each others property

I live near the bus stop. I am close to the best Hospital and my Drs office. And I am just 3 blocks from the bayfront. It's easy to get around during the day.

I love living on the Southside. I grew up on this side as a kid an now I love seeing the changes that hv occured over the 40 plus years I've been around. A variety of restaurants an new walkable stores close by. My family an kids an friends are all around me.

I love that we have the kickball field in our neighborhood. And also have thr best convenient store down the road, along with a popular bar in my neighborhood.

The separate pools is one of them features that it unique in my neighborhood since other neighborhoods don't have separate pools. One of the places I like going with family is the shopping mall

I like to go shopping with my family, go to the amusement park, go to the movies, go to eat western food, it makes me feel very happy
