What Renters Like and Dislike About Mountain Brook

Quiet area. We are near Fred Meyer and Starbucks. Lots of fast food and locally owned restaurants. The freeway is near and Walmart too.

I like that I live in a one floor apt. that I can have a garden both in front and in back. I can park right outside of my apt., and I can have friends over, walk to shopping.

It is not a main thru street so this cuts down on traffic. There is a small strip mall within a mile that contains a grocery store, drug store, pet supply store , office supply store and multiplexes other stores that can cover most basic needs.

I have a roof over my head. My landlord is great. That's all I have to say about it. Washington in general is completely too expensive for blue collar workers

I love the Hispanic influence because I love Mexican food and my daughter has become bilingual in Spanish.

Shopping and the outlet malls and hiking. Love all the local cuisine and hangout apots.mmmmmmmmm.....................
