Quiet area


Traffic is horrible, everyday around 2-3 traffic starts to buildup and accidents start to happen. Only problem with everything is the traffic


It could be more friendly more neighborly


The community is bad for the elderly and the children. I wouldn't recommend it, and that's a strong indication of why I'm relocating to North Carolina.


Large influx of mature people, beautiful weather, beach, great transportation. For example, there are a large number of communities being targeted at aging population.
