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.

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

There is a lot of things near by. My favorite place to eat is mama Margie's bean and cheese tacos. The steers need to be fixed though

The commute is not far to downtown. There is a bus line and some restaurants. Also we have Walgreens.

The only unique thing about my neighborhood is we're close to the highways and not far from downtown

The church I attend, Love Gospel Church is located next door. There are different restaurants that are walking distance from the apartment complex. Two separate Circle K locations are conveniently located nearby as well.
