Pumpkin Center Reviews
The Housing in this area is catered to the military community, and sense most people in this area aren't here long, most houses and apartments are for rent. This creates a lot of competition keeping the prices low. The prices are also catered to the military "basic allowance for housing." There's houses in town, houses 20 to 30 minutes away with lots of land, new neighborhoods for custom builds, lots of apartments, and lots of town houses.
This area has double or even triple of every store or restaurant you could think of, the problem is tens of thousands of people live here and the two main roads are only 2 lanes which causes heavy traffic. And since most people in this area are military everyone gets off work at the same time and live the same schedule. So after 1630 on weekdays its impossible to get anywhere and same on the weekends.
Given all the military in the area you feel very safe and theres a general respect for one another. I mean you'll always have the people that commit crimes but in this area the majority of people do not. And given all the young marines experiencing freedom for the first time, police are always trying around and on the move, but mostly for traffic violations.
