I have lived in Mantua for 23 years. It is a great neighborhood for all stages of life. It is easy to meet people through social media, the swim and tennis club, the parks or just by taking a walk! There are Bunko groups, bridge groups, tennis groups for all ages, gardening groups, the list is unending. The elementary school, middle school and high school are all within biking distance and walking distance for some. I feel like we are in a sweet spot for commuting as well. We are close to 66 and 495 and there are two Metro stations within 3 miles. As you can see, I highly recommend the neighborhood!
