What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Visalia

What we like about our neighborhood and where we live is that it is ver safe and secured, that no worries on anything getting stolen and everyone is friendly

It's family friendly. A lot of family owned businesses. The area is small and quaint. A tourist attraction being close to national parks and rivers.

most homes have some family others are seniors living alone. McDonalds is a few blocks away along with grocery store, other restaurants, gas station.

I like having a park so close to my house. There is a shopping center near our neighborhood which is also nice

I live in an older part of town next to the major freeway. Downtown is across the freeway, and is walkable if you are in good condition to get to restaurants, hair salons, etc. It is very easy access to anywhere from my home.
