Local Reviews

One unique thing about my neighborhood is theres a cute litte community garden, my favorite local business would be any of the amazing local food trucks that we have here that always are so kind, generous, and have the best food. I like going to the rec center with my family, to the park, and to the outlets by the movie theater.

Watch kids laugh as they walk to & from school. Living in the shade because of the trees overhead. Close to stores & Doctors. With parks all around.

My neighborhood is walking distance from the university I go to, and close to downtown. There's also local college bars I can walk to.

The best part about my neighborhood is the little mini downtown. It is 3 minutes from my home surrounded by small businesses. I'll sometimes go to speakeasy bar to hang out with friends and listen to live bands.

The fact that it is diverse and walks of people. People come in all shapes and sizes here. Everyone is unique here

Walking distance to grocery store, retail stores & dining. There's a park nearby. A couple of schools close by as well.
