Local Reviews

Close restaurants and grocery stores. Can walk to the schools. People are friendly. Economically friendly.

Friendly people, low crime, great schools, inexpensive to live, great areas to run. Area has very good roads and everything is in good repair

There is a school near by with a big park for our kids. I like the fact that the houses and townhomes are new. It's a great place to raise kids and pets.

We have a lot of small restaurants near us, we have a semi active night life in our area and we have a few good bars

I like walking during the day but never at night..I would be scared to walk at night..the park is close by so I would go during the day

I like that my neighborhood is on the edge of town, so not much traffic. I like that lot's of people walk their pets in the nieghborhood.
