What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Groton

It's a tight nit community. Neighbors look out for each other. Everyone knows each other. The parks are nice for exercising and playing.

I like that it is more of a rural area than being urban,also being close to any type of store you need.

On the edge of nowhere , 2 restaurants down the street in walking distance. A park down the street. Basketball court. Baseball diamond. Volleyball

Our neighborhood is made up of unique houses with families with similiar situations. I have lived there a long time and love the people around me except for the neighbors with the barking dogs

We can also go out for a trip with our neighbors at the weekend to get closer to each other.We can also go out to travel during the holiday, see the scenery, eat food, to improve the relationship between us

Close to walmart and grocery store. Can walk to a bar and restaurant. I like to go shopping with my siblings
