My wife in I bought our first home in this area. We loved the small town feel it has, while still being close to the services and shopping we needed. The main road through the area (N. Cotner Boulevard) was always taken care of and nicely decorated. Bethany's annual parade runs up and down the street every year, and is a fairly popular event. A majority of the homes in this area were built in the 1950's and 60's, and prices are very reasonable - typically ranging from $85,000-$130,000.
