What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Thornton

It is family and pet friendly. It's clean and well kept. I like going to the park with the dog. And today was the first coffee shop to open nearby!

I love that we have many parks and outdoor activities. All year round you can find something to do! I also love Boardwalk Pizza! Great local pizza!

The neighbors are nice. Walking distance for pizza. There's a park for the kids. Not good for trick or treating because of the really big houses behind us.

I enjoy loving so close to the lightrail while still being in a quiet neighborhood. I also enjoy being right on a major bike trail way.

I think a unique thing about my neighborhood is some of the rent - it's low compared to a lot of the other places around it. There's a 7-Eleven that's easy to walk to when we need to. But there's not really a place in our neighborhood to go with family and friends other than stores.

I like living in my neighborhood because I grew up in the area and went to the same school district my daughter goes to. My family still lives in the same city.
