Norco Reviews

3 reviews
I love this area not only because I grew up here but because of the small town lifestyle. Everyone is super friendly; neighborhoods are extremely safe. The public schools are phenomenal. There are tons of opportunities to be involved whether it's at church, craft classes, library classes and activities, sports, etc. If I had kids a place like this would be where I would want them to grow up.
