Downtown Reviews

2 reviews
There are barley any children or older teens to hangout with. Most of the people in the neighborhood are unmarred 20 to 30 year-olds with no children. Social there is almost nothing for teenagers, but is top notch for safety and security, to keep your children and teens safe. There are too many tourists, protesters, and rioters coming from all over the country disturbing the peace, but they do make us some money.
