I like my neighborhood because it's quiet there's people of all ages that like there. It's a few blocks away from the elementary school, down the rode from Circle K and minutes away from Walmart and other stores and fast food restaurants.

It is a small community with little reasour for our youth

There's things for everyone in the community to do

The most attractive feature of this area is, of course, the mild winters and being a rural area, the taxes are low. However, unless you can afford the high price of a senior community, there is nothing here for the local seniors. There are no 'community' senior centers, there is zero public transportation, part-time jobs for seniors are few and employees are driven to perform well beyond what would be considered reasonable.
