Local Reviews

There are a lot of good restaurants here. One of my favorites is PKs. I also like 622 North Main. We have several playgrounds and walking trails.

I live 5 minutes from Va Tech, not that I like that but the town and busy areas are kept clean and decorated beautifully. There are several things to do with kids.We like the trampoline park and the skate park. I love the walking/hiking trails. I mean I'm in the mountains, what's not to love?!

We like having a walkable park. We like the mountain views. We like the unique architecture. We like being close to our jobs and schools.

I like all the trees in the area. They are blooming flowers and it's very pretty. I also really like the walking path.

Our neighborhood has 2 bank branches. It has a grocery store and beauty parlor/ spa. We have walking/bike trails that connect to national park.
