What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Huntsville

I don't really know anything unique about here. Don't really have any favorites. Closest may be a small chinese restaurant. Don't go out a lot unless traveling.

nice and quiet,if somebody yells or needs help we would know instantly and not just disregard it.Nothing here is unique,but the peace and quiet

I love going to hibachi with friends and family when we have free time on our hand it's very delicious food that is served

My favourite spot would have to be the big spring park because if amazing. The von Braun center is close to us that probably be the main spot to go.

I grew up I. This neighborhood. I went to school down the road and my grandmother and father live right down the road so that's kinda nice

My neighborhood is uniquely quiet fot an urban setting. My favorite businesses are target and Walmart. I like to go to bookstores with my spouse.
