Local Reviews

I like that it's near schools and grocery stores. It's right in the middle of the city so its easier to get to other places.

I like the location- close to the beach and the town center. I like the quiet that occurs there. And I like having two groceries stores in walking distance.

MY NEIGHBORHOOD IS CLOSE TO A SCHOOL AND A MAJOR HOSPITAL. WE HAVE A PETTING ZOO WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE.
