What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About South Tucson

My neighborhood is unique because it's a really quiet.We have a lot of places to visit and walking to my favorite stores and eating at local restaurants to see the locals..

Close to bus stop for public transportation. Close to convince store and some restaurants plus pharmacy near by if I need to get there quickly

It is an older neighborhood so all the houses are different not a cookie cutter neighborhood. There is a Target with a Starbucks inside across the street. We have a Little League at the local school.

The thing i like the most about our neighborhood that people are so friendly. We like to go to a buffet restaurant near out house. We like to go to Arrowhead Mall in the weekend for our family bonding.

We live close to the school our kids attend. We like the community features like all of the parks and the community pool.

I REALLY LIKE THE CHINESE BUFFET THEY HAVE NEAR HERE, VERY TASTY FOOD AT AFFORDABLE PRICES. I LIKE GOING SHOPPING AT WALMART WITH MY FAMILY THEN HEAD OFF TO THE RIVER
