Walmer Reviews

The placement of my neighborhood is the best for someone like me. I have friends who live south and friends who live more east. I'm smack dead right in the middle of everyone. If I have friends coming from the south who are driving to our friends house to the east I will just hitch a ride. Downtown is only about 10 minutes away from me and I live very close to the highway. I never have to take the highway home from school so that's an advantage for me as well. Also the food around me is all high quality so I never have to travel far for some well-cooked food.
