What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Danbury

Side walks, best lighting, near downtown, best roads, safe to walk at night, safe for children to play

I like the diverse dining restaurants. There is a sense of a diverse community. There are many things in the middle of the town but as you move away things are farther away.

very friendly community, beach and boat slip rights. close to everything by car or bus. good for raising family.

I like that it has a quiet, suburban, family friendly vibe while still also being close to the city where there is so much to do and such a big night life.

Lots of food nearby is always good. Favorite BBQ nearby. I can go to the top notch malls in my area and enjoy a movie or a park.

My neighborhood is multicultural and diverse; local businesses include small businesses and larger commercial stores such as Target, Home Goods, etc; enjoy hiking and going to local vineyards with family and friends
