What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About El Monte

Neighbors are somewhat friendly, you can party without having cops called within 7 hours. Local businesses are 10 minutes away in car. With family and friends we go to restaurants, and a snack vendor place. Nightlife we go to Pasadena for nightclubs.

It is close to freeway and convenient to go to other cities. Target is close by and I can reach other cities by freeway or local without much hassle.

There are a few restaurants, shops and bars that are within walking distance. There also is grocery stores and other markets close by.

My neighborhood is unique by having a discount mall and many restaurants. I like going to the park with my friends.

My neighborhood is unique by the fact that all of my neighbors are the owners so there are no ventures. It's all homeowners in the same neighborhood that's nice we're really close to the bus station and train station so anywhere I want to go if I don't feel like driving. I've got those other two options I like going out to eat with my family and friends

Well I like that I'm walking distance from the corner store. There's a walking/ hiking trail near me, I just won't use it after dark. And the park is right around the corner from me.
