What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About San Clemente

Nothing . It's just another rundown part of the ghetto. Just old Milwaukeewith lots of gentrification

I like that it's safe. Additionally I like that it seems like decorations go up on holidays because it helps to put you in the spirit of the time

It is very quiet. Safe to walk around and do some exercise. Not too much traffic through the area.

ITV is a childhood friendly hood and there is a lot of friendly people everyone says hello to you over nice neighborhood

Families and school system care very much. Great area fir shopping also. Fun place to live and raise a family.

There wasn't much to choose from when I was looking for a place to stay but there are different places to go around the house
