My family and I have only lived within our house for the past 2 years but we have loved it. From the layout of our actual house, to our neighbors, and the community club house, we find it cozy and relaxing. My parents are especially in love with our neighborhood and have decided on permanently residing in our current house which says something because we have moved to about 7+ house in my lifetime alone. I just hope whomever reads this will find the same happiness that we did in Westfield Reserves.

Grayson is a great town to live in! It is about forty-five minutes outside of the city. Over the years, the town has grown tremendously. There are a lot more stores and shops all over the place. There are great people all over this town and I personally wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
I like that you have a little bit of everything near you and not that far away, but there are so many neighborhoods and so many that are being built that they take away the nature of the area. Aside from the parks, which are also quite nice, the absence of nature makes it seem like it will eventually become a city like place and not suburban. As a side note, it is quite a community centered town because we have our own parade called the Grayson Day Parade and the local high school, boy and girl scout troops, and other organizations are featured, which really help bring us all together as a community. Overall it is a nice place if you like suburban areas and a strong community feeling.
