"Good Though Boring"

The Somerset neighborhood at the far eastern (and southern, almost) portion of the neighborhood is a leafy middle class neighborhood that pushes up against Highway 2. The neighborhood is a mix of older, nicely kept homes and newer, pleasant looking—though rather snuggly packed—apartment buildings.

The neighborhood also has at least a pair of Protestant churches, a Lutheran and a Baptist congregation, bookmarking the northwest and southwest corners respectively.

In the southwest corner of the neighborhood is a big retirement community called Windsor Manor. It is one of those well-funded homes with the complete care for the residents kept in mind. Windsor sits right next to Windsor Mini Park, one of the many such small green spaces in southern Glendale.

Along Colorado Street on the north, there are number of motels and eateries including the dive bar, Coco Bango. It is not just fast food and supermarkets in the neighborhood, however. You can also get India food at Indra and some other types of ethnic food on the northern side of Colorado.

Overall, though, there is not much going on in this neighborhood. If you like that, than this is the place for you. If you want a bit more action, try elsewhere.
