Local Reviews

Ourr unique neighborhood is safe and beauty and about favorite local is park because it's beauty and I'm like going with family in morning

GROCERY STORE, HOSPITAL/E.R, RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET, AND LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENT IS AROUND THE CORNER AS WELL. wE ALSO HAVE SECURITY THAT PATROLS THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND NIGHT

Friends are close by. Close to beaches. Close to interstate and airport. Grocery stores and other shopping nearby.

There are many nice places to go for good food in the area but I like the proximity to transportation. We are located near many bus and metro stops

My neighborhood is filled with old people and I love old people. My favorite restaurant around my neighborhood is Chick-fil-A because I just Chick-fil-A I love its food. I'll like to go walk around the lake with my family.
