Local Reviews

I like having privacy and being away from the main city. My husband also does not get racially profiled here like he does in the nearest college town.

public transportation is nearby.the college is close.and there are plenty of businesses in walking distance

It's next to a university, which is good to play soccer and stuff. It's next to a grocery store and a plaza of stores

I like that there are several different things in walking distance. Like the schools, parks and several different restaurants as well.

I like my neighborhood because it is historical; it is former air force officer housing. The street is quiet and surrounded by a state park with an activity center and playground steps away. It is a 10 minute walk to public beaches and several restaurants are within a 30 min walk. I love being surrounded by nature, birdsong & quiet!

I love the nature, interurban trails, local restaurants, easy cheap bus systems, good beer, access to legal cannabis
