Not only does the location have superb views, but it is in the middle of a walker’s paradise. Everything you could need is right outside your door. Within half a mile you’ll find dozens of restaurants and coffee shops, five grocery stores, enough shopping to kill normal people, four schools, half-a-dozen book stores, movie theaters and playhouses, and more than a few banks.
