Local Reviews

I like the school district and their academic program. I like have several restaurants, shopping and groceries stores close.

it's a campground, 1.5 miles from oceanfront, 1.5 miles from major grocery stores & gas, 3/4 mile from bus stops & convenience stores, and safe to come home late at night uber & lyft friendly,

It's quiet, generally very safe, does not flood, a short drive from most stores, lots of plants trees and gardens

Love the trees, large yard. LIke that it is quiet and yet close to nice restaurants and shops. There are also grocery and drug stores in walking distance as well as Starbucks!

I like that it is a quiet neighborhood. There is a shopping plaza right across the street and doctors, banks, and other stores all within walking distance. The sidewalks are nice and bus system is available nearby.

The buildings are vintage but have cement that's pretty unique, it's very close to a few outlets and groceries stores
