Local Reviews

I think what's unique is that wee have a little shopping center right in the front that has a little breakfast place and a bar and grill place.

It's close to quite a few stores without having to go very far. Also I don't have to go a long distance to be able to get to an store.

I don't have anything I can think of that applies to this really I mean it used to be ok but it's not that great now I guess

The unique thing about neighborhood it is near the water. In addition it a great place to raise your family and walk your dog.

I like how it's quiet and it's I like Starbucks and I like going to the movies with my friends and family it's really fun to go with them around

Something unique about my area is that the current mall is about to be demolished and rapper Pharrell Williams is developing a stadium in its place my favorite places in the area would have to be the wawa, 711 and tropical smoothie Cafe. Places I like going are the norfolk southern train museum, the zoo and the oceanfront in Virginia beach.
