Douglas Acres Reviews
Most businesses are restaurants both local and corporate (Latin King, McDonalds), grocery stores (Hyvee and formerly Dahls) and convenience stores (Casey's and Kum and Go). In order to go to larger shopping districts, one must travel about 15 min. from the area. This neighborhood, in general, serves lower income families so there are not too many spectacular activities in the immediate area.
The neighborhood is made up of mostly corporate restaurants with a few local joints. Within these restaurants, there are not a great variety of drinks, mostly pop. One restaurant nearby, Latin King is a nice dine-in restaurant. If there are any bars in the area, they are dives in sketchy parts on town.
Recently, there there have been homicides in my neighborhood. A few burglaries have also occurred in my place of residence. Neighbors adopt a "every man for themselves" mentality.
