A commercial free-for-all, retail and commerce cronies unite on the southern side of town.
Two major malls and a throng of shopping centers make this a business mecca. And with so much competition, there can’t be anything but value.
The residential pockets are famous for ranch-style and patio homes, lots of apartments and condos. Landmarks like Bacon Park also exist with designated acreage – 500 of them – just for soccer, golf, swimming and tennis.
