Local Reviews

It's connected to everything. Highways, food places, schools and stores. I like it because it's close to my job.

I like the neighborhood because it is convenient. It is not far from other places I like to go and visit.itetb

I like that everyone in the neighborhood knows each other. So even while we arnt home you know that your house and belongings are safe. We all hang out during every big holiday.

Half of it is an older area, and I live in the newer area, but they blend very well. They have a bus for seniors and handicap that will pick up at the house and take to the Doc or shopping.

We have some of the best beaches in the usa. We have amazing restaurants and we are a tourist destination for our beaches and theme parks

Game rooms every where and a lot of Latino back ground and Mexican food is every where drying clothes are free and lots of food banks
