"Nice shopping area but needs a major overhaul in the upkeep area."
Palm trees might be a familiar site in California, but they are sill always nice to see. It reminds you that you are in a place where winter does not exist. Blacow Road has plenty of palm trees. The road is lengthy and is home to fast-food joints, houses, schools, the Fremont Central Park, familiar outlets such as big named retailers and other independent locations. This is a decent area in terms of shopping but I wouldn't want to live on this street. For one it is too busy and a lot of the area has a grubby look. Despite being busy street the upkeep has been relatively poor. People that are not from the area would probably not even stopping at any of the shops because of the look or leave with a bad impression of the area.
