Beautfiul Boats... Watersports Sailing...Restaurants...shopping Fashion Island Dining Views Amusements Ocean Beaches

It's very slow to almost no traffic. The neighbors know each other and kids play outside all the time.

I love being able to walk to two grocery stores and target, I like living on a bus route in case something happens to my car and I can't afford a rental, and I like the landscaping around my apartment.

I like I can walk to a lot of places. It's also near fair grounds. I also like the proximity to where my friends live.
