Adore Midtown Mobile

I love living in Midtown. We bought a house on Rickarby Place in Carlen and I have been very pleased with this area. We have been invited to our neighbors homes for get-togethers and everyone watches each others house. I love to hear the church bells when I am sitting on my front porch and the train at night. We even hear the band playing for the high school and cheers for the ball players. Its a delightful neighborhood. I walk to the coffee shop, doctors, dentist and hair stylist. I do wish there were better sidewalks.
