Lake Somerset Reviews

There are a variety of neighborhoods with houses or apartments. The apartments are very inexpensive 700-1000 and are nicely updated and safe in certain areas, specifically mine. There are also many nicer, gated neighborhoods with great yards and in a safe community but are obviously more expensive around 100-300,000. It could still be considered inexpensive because you get a lot of house for that price.

Usually I find it safe with low crime rates, but there have been a few times where crime seems to spike randomly, but even then the police tends to respond very quickly and efficiently.
There are an abundance of restaurants always open. The downtown area has many great small restaurants with friendly workers and delicious food of all kinds; theres seafood, pizza, burgers, mexican, and a few bars a long with three small coffee shops. There is also a newer mall with many restaurants such as Abuelos, Olive Garden, and Longhorn.
