Local Reviews

This area I live inis mostly seniors. No children or schools nearby' Some of us seniors would like to have one of our nearby Casins provide a bus and take us to play and have a nice once a month.

The stores are really close and all my friends and family aren't too far from me. I love going to feast buffet but due to covid 19 lately we couldn't go to eat there

What I like most about living in my neighborhood are the diversity, friendliness, and convenience.

There is a soccer field near by so I can go play soccer. I also like that there is places to go eat and walk around to go to

It's really close to where I work. There are good shops within a short distance to drive. There are parks where you can walk your dogs.

It is quiet and good to live at. It is good for families and a lot of people walk out side on the sidewalk.
