The Drake neighborhood is one of the city’s best up and coming locations. It sounds funny to say up and coming since it’s also one of the area’s oldest neighborhoods. Filled with turn of the century craftsman homes, the neighborhood offers homes and styles to fit any budget. Since it has remained a bit of a secret to home buyers, the prices haven't inflated as much as other locations in the city. If you are looking for natural woodwork, a big front porch, craftsman detailing and all the great features that come along with it, you should consider the Drake neighborhood! I not only attended Drake University, my family and I also live in this area. We love it!
