The home sites are wooded with cooling shade trees, such as oaks, cottonwoods, red buckeyes, and hickories. On warm Tallahassee days, the scent of orange blossom perfumes the air, and brightly colored zinnias and carnations border the front of properties. A myriad of birds also inhabit the area and include such species as wrens, mockingbirds, vireos, starlings, wood thrushes, bluebirds, and indigo buntings.
Residents like the fact that they are near Tom Brown Park, which is situated northeast of the community.

The shopping center plays host to such exclusive retailers as Macy’s, Dillard’s, and Abercrombie and Fitch. Shoppers can shop all day at the facility as there are over 100 retailers in the two-story complex.
Lake Bradford is another favorite recreational site and provides residents with the opportunity to enjoy a quiet day on the water kayaking or bass fishing. Nature trails give birders a chance to catch glimpses of rare birds, such as the bald eagle or the snowy egret.
