I enjoyed it a lot more when there wasn't as many people!! Especially cause most new residents are from the East,or West coast which I don't personally get along with very well.. The couple of neat things is that we have a grocery store, a restaurant, and a bar with karaoke which is fun on the weekend's!! Also the views are amazing!!!!
