Local Reviews

I'm honestly not sure? It's not the best neighborhood but I do like that it's near downtown for sure and I guess the fact that some stores aren't that far, like kind of within walking distance.

We have a very diverse neighborhood with many different cultures. It makes it so fun. We also have a good mix of children all the way to elderly people. Just a really nice neighborhood.

Near restaurants and movie theaters. Nearby gyms. Far enough out that traffic isn't so bad. Near medical facilities.

Many parks, very close in all the schools are within walking distance Many parks close by so you can enjoy meeting with family

Walmart is close by,close to my kid school,close to my local pharmacy and my favorite mechanic local pizza spot.

I like that we have a fire station across the street from my house. I like that it is also quiet and everyone is friendly
