In the Neighborhood: MayPosted 05/01/2014
So many things to do, so little time. And no, we’re not talking about household chores! May is the month when still-cool evenings and not-too-hot days provide just the right temperature for getting out and exploring your surroundings. So put aside your to-do list and make some time to take advantage of the fun activities occurring near your Maracay Homes neighborhood.
