I absolutely love the location! Everything is nearby as well. If I can't walk to it the drive isn't more than 15 minutes. There's plenty places to visit and things to do, no matter what time of day. Always clean and the people are not only friendly and helpful, but abundantly diverse. I've met so many new friends and haven't had an issue with anyone or anything. The price of living in such a nice area is reasonable. On top of all that, cops are always making their rounds so I feel safer here than the bigger city nearby. I'd recommend this area to anyone of my friends and family.

Elmwood Mall , AMC Theaters & Chik Fil A are my favorite locations to visit while residing in Elmwood. It is also a safe environment with a large police presence.
The only complaint would be the eighteen wheelers speeding down the street.
