What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bristol

There's coffee nearby, there's two stores within walking distance both grocery and clothing, and there's also restaurants and my eye doctor too

The homes are very similar in design. We have a lot of big grocery stores nearby. We have a beautiful amusement park nearby.

It is safe and just a nice place to live. The neighbors are nice but not too much. It's got good schools and restaurants. It's safe and fun.

Having a relatively untouched outdoor area with great lake access makes my neighborhood unique. On my own, my favorite activity is to get out and go fishing. With my family, seeing concerts outdoors and hiking with my dog are favorite things to do.

There are lots of different restaurants near by, a large variety. The neighbor is really safe but not a lot of activity.

A lot of diversity is in this neighb and so I think it makes a pretty safe neighborhood because people can relate to seeing people that look like them what makes you feel a lot more comfortableorhood
