Local Reviews

I like that I'm at walking distance to many stores and places to eat. We like to go for walk around the big duck pond behind our apartments

It's not a dark and it's not aloud at night neighbors keep to themselves it feels safe it has a near by park

It's close to a mall, and lots of restaurants. The grocery store is nearby, and pet shops are close too

Easy highway access, close to schools and shopping, just 45 minutes away 10 snow resorts, beautiful mountains, the largest salt water lake, lots of great fishing areas close by, a premier children's hospital

Close to shopping centers and resturants, there are a lot of places you can walk to that are safe. Close to a large movie theater, hardware store and warehouse. Lots of things to do. Favorite place to eat is Lalunas, there's a huge book store. Very close to a recreation center where you can take your children to swim or do fitness. Next to the Olympic oval.

I like that I am living so close to my friend. It is the reason I moved. She can walk to my house in 15 minutes.
