Local Reviews

Bars on every corner neighborhoods look out for each other. Stores are far away. Family is close. Parks are kid friendly

The things like most is friendly neighborhood. Many of them clean.The neighborhood is quiet. Animals get alone.

Going to beaches and family ruinioms at parks and houses outside where we can have fun and nothing to worry about

What is unique about my neighborhood is thers the county stadium teams go play ball at another thing would be the lake

There are some local stores around my neighborhood so I would like to go there with my friends. There are also small businesses and shops that seem pretty cheap and my friends are most likely to go there.
