Local Reviews

I like that it is pretty quiet at night. There are no major party houses among the college students on our street. I also like that because we are on the second floor we can see over the houses in front of us.

The people here are friendly. There are lots of opportunity for exercise. We have great weather compared to other areas near by. The local shopping is very personal.

I like the neighbors that I know and I'm grateful I trust them. I like that the children are safe to play outside without constant supervision.

I do like the views plus I can walk to a store or downtown and it does not take me that long. I do like some of the neighbors.
