Local Reviews

I love to walk around Walmart or Lidl to look around and see if I can get things they always have great sale

I like that we can walk to where we need to go. I also like that my favorite coffee shop is walking distance, and there is lots to do.

I like that I don't live to far from MD. It's actually in walking distance. Plus there is a shopping center and restaurants.

Again it is up on top of a hill which makes it different. Otherwise it really is just like any other neighborhood though thankfully no HA
