What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Fairbanks

very close to local schools. close to safeway as well. but is still far from town town. that is it. ther eis nothing else to add

We are close to the whole east side of town and right next to an Army base. My favorite restaurants are homestyle cooking, sushi and a steak house. I shop at Fred Meyer and Costco. I go to eat out with my sons or friends.

It's in the suburbs so there are no businesses. This means only people that live here should be driving around. It is quiet for the most part.

I like living in my neighborhood because it is in a convenient location in town. It is close to my husbands work and also mine, and we have friends close by.

everything but a main stream grocery store is basically within walking distance. some nice restaurants are here as well.
