What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Benton

There's nothing unique about the neighborhood. We don't have close by business other then DG. My friend and family like to go to the park or to Walmart. Any big activities you have to drive atleast 40 mins for.

I live across the street from the park and I walk my dogs over there. I love to go exploring and looking for crystals. It's within walking distance to my Dr and a flea market and the stores are about 5 mins away

Close to downtown, walking distance to good schools, nice neighbors, quiet area, parks and woods nearby!

I do like that our neighborhood has a gas station nearby. This makes getting drinks convenient. I also like that there are two schools located within 5 miles of our neighborhood.

it is very peaceful and we barely get disturbed by our neighbors and also police come through it every now and then

I mostly like that the house is nice. ladies jog at night so it's safe.
