Plenty of activities in this area. Shopping friendly. Bus transport is timely, I rode the bus myself to shop. Numerous over 55 mobile home parks with lovely pools and many community get togethers. Nearly every store has elderly employees for those who are not ready to retire just yet. If you wished to further your education there are many schools in the area. Lovely restaurants if you wished to have a night out on the town.This is a wonderful area to live in and make a living in.
