Local Reviews

The neighborhood is very clean, no trash on the sidewalks. No people hanging out on the street corner selling drugs. The downtown has a lot of American history and museums.

It is a 55 and older neighborhood. There is all kinds of fast food restaurants. I don't go places with friends and family.

Within walking distance to Food Lion which came in handy when we had a very bad snow storm one year. And there is a 711 down the street.

I live near a busy road, so I can walk to the gas station across the street. It's also easy to access public transportation in this neighborhood. For any shops or hang-out places, I have to leave the neighborhood.

I like to take walks and go to the pool with my friends and family. I can walk to many different restaurant.
