Shady Hallow always has a safe place for your family. Not only are there activities for the full family, but streets filled with trees away in a lovely suburban neighborhood. The accessibility to all needed things being just around the corner from you is a big plus to the region. There is the perfect amount of privacy, too.
Nice neighborhood with nice people. Active people but not too the point its irritating, nice mix of young and old people. Near good elementary school. But there is a lot of traffic to get out of the neighborhood. Amenity center is quality
