Local Reviews

A year-round lake. A creek and neighborhood woods with wildlife. Ten minutes to Potomac River. Local restaurants and shops have started going out of business, nowhere to go with friends anywhere nearby.

There is a track I run on at the middle school across the street. There is a mcdonalds and a taco bell right across the street which have drive thru's open very late.

My family lives near by and stores are near us. And not as loud. No bad qualities . My friends also live near by.

I enjoy walking around the plaza. There's a fair amount of fast food joints to walk in and hang out at.
