A great place for our first home as newlyweds! Close to city and country living. Wonderful dining, neighbors, and culture.

We don't have sidewalks outside of downtown. Downtown and Carytown are good for walking and biking.
Parking downtown is difficult to find, also difficult to parallel park with so much traffic
