I love it. It's a nice town for anyone. Plenty of bars for partiers. Hotels for business class and families. Centrally located to everything in the metroplex. Best decision moving here!
Review Addison
I have called this place home for the last 3 years. This is where I see my son and I continuing to grow as a family. The neighborhood is amazing, we have a bike trail he likes to ride on, and a dog park close by. I feel safe here being a single parent, I don't have any worries. We are close to everything almost walking distances to restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters and my sons favorite place Chipotle.! I would recommend this city to anyone looking for a place to raise kids, be close to everything they could want, and feel comfortable.
It's a great town with low crime, many job opportunities, increasing real estate with diverse restaurants. Oktoberfest and KABOOM town are both hosted here. The parks are well kept and perfectly manicured. It is centrally located and home to many young professionals.
