  • This is a truly lovely and upbeat area. Shops, restaurants, movies, library. And did I say really good restaurants. All nice and walkable.

  • So many wonderful restaurants and shops. Every restaurant I have tried has been delicious. There is a great dog park nearby. Walking around the village is easy and safe. There is no metro train, but there is a bus depot. If you are looking for a place to live, this place is perfect, but rarely has openings in the few condo buildings.
  • Quaint stores and friendly people are what the Village offers. I love the food selections and the fact the area is extremely family oriented and that includes our furry family. The weather was perfect, no issues finding parking and just a great time with my friend and family.
