Local Reviews

I am in an older section of the neighborhood, so the trees are fully grown and well established. I like that the neighborhood is close to shopping and convenient to major roadways to access the city. I like the school district we are in.

I like the amount of trees and parks in the area. I like the fact that it is convenient to malls and stores.

First, it's peaceful and very neighborly. A nearby park and community pool brings neighbors together. Lastly, we are in close proximity to a shopping mall, minute theater, ice skating rink, bowling alley and numerous restaurants.

Favorite local business, restaurants, bars, Shops etc y where do you like going with family it is an advantage to have everything so close and accessible

I love our home, it is recently remodeled and updated which is nice. It is close to my boyfriends workplace so he saves on gas. Grocery stores/gas stations are close

There are a lot of restaurants and fast food joints in my area.Also a grocery store within walking distance
