Local Reviews

There is a few food options down the street me and my kids like popeyes and to shop and eat at Popeyes it's pretty good

I've been here my whole life. There really isn't bars or anything within my neighborhood so have to travel away to go to any of that

This neighborhood has friendly people and is pet friendly. There are a couple of gas stations and restaurants within walking distance.

My husband and I love walking over to the greenway to walk our dog. There is also a park near by for our nieces and nephews to play. We have three neighbors we feel we have a good relationship with as well.

We have a CVS right down the street so everything is accesible. We also have a Famil Dollar and a store down the street. All of my neighbors are friendly.

I really like living in the back of the neighborhood because it's quite and there are woods behind my house. My neighbors have all lived there for 15+ years
