There were a lot of unique restaurants, that included a couple asian restaurants, as well as some fast-food chains. There were probably 3 restaurants that I would go to in order to have a nice, classy, affordable meal. The rest of the restaurants were either food, run down, or didn't have many customers. The food was pretty good at a place called Applebees and Buffalo Wild Wings.

I love to be outdoors wherever I am. This area is peaceful,and for the most part, quiet. The quality of the parks are professional; the upkeep is and service is professional. There are a couple of wildlife/national parks, and they are okay. Pollution is minimal.
I see this area growing and becoming bigger, more families moving in, more businesses opening.
