What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Fountain

I'm New here I don't know much about my area. It is a nice area to live in. I don't have a favorite place

It is a bit of an upscale area. There are many good restaurants close by. I rarely go anywhere with other people.

Live near my favorite restaurants. There are also 3 parks within 2 miles from my house. There is also grocery shopping right up the street.

the closeness to town is very convienant,many locla restarants and places to shop, many parks as well

There are lots of local restaurants that are not chains within walking distance. There is a nice park across the street.

I love how all the people are friendly and always caring. We always clean the snow from each others drive way. Lol its like a competion
