What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Ocala

We are close to shopping and restaurants. Also have walking trails close by. I like going to Silver Springs Park for the day.

It's near enough to the city center, without being in the middle of it. It's about 3 minutes to get to the busy part of the city. It is near a theater and a couple small restaurants.

Even though I'm one street over from a four lane road it's still quiet and close to many things that I like having. Stores, restaurants, shops, parks, recreation. Love going out to eat.

It is quiet and close to basic shopping needs. Most of neighbord keep to them selfs but are alsoconsiderate.

The area is quiet but friendly, people wave to each other. Cars do not speed down the streets. Homes are well- maintained.

The location and all everything together are good and everything will come out on there and check out Firekirin
