Local Reviews

I like being able to walk around feeling safe. I also like how it is quiet. My neighborhood has a private beach which is nice because it is family friendly and very clean. They also have a lot of parks that are kept up with.

I live in a relatively quiet area in a senior community. It is quieter than the average apartment community.

I like that there are all the amenities I need nearby, great community center with arts classes. Lots of good restaurants and beautiful parks nearby.

It is a fairly upscale area. We have lots of different ethnic restaurants. There a some small parks where kids and adults can go.
