Looking to make a move to Loomis? You won't regret it. There's many reasons why people love living in Loomis and we are going to share the top ten reasons why you'll never want to leave.
1. Loomis Has Lots of Open Space:
Loomis used to be an even quieter town, but as more growth happens, some of that feel is traded for more industry, shopping areas, restaurants and schools. But, despite all of this growth, Loomis has fought hard to maintain lots of open space and larger lots for houses than many neighboring towns. This continues to give Loomis its quieter, more rural feel.
2. Loomis Has Tons of Local Places:
If you're tired of seeing the same strip mall and chain restaurants everywhere you go, you'll love Loomis. Local mom and pop places thrive here. Just take a peek at some of the delicious food at LBB Gastropub & Smokehouse! We just shared this pic over on our Instagram.
Mouthwatering, right? And, there's more where that came from. You'll find a lot of local places with tons of heart, character, and delicious food right here in town.
And, you'll still have easy access to anything else you could need and want, too, for those necessary trips to Target or Starbucks.
