What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Pensacola

We enjoy the array of parks and activities in our neighborhood. I would love some shops in walking distance.

I am in a great part of town. Very close to shopping, restruants, entertainment and downtown. Also close to the beach.

My neighborhood is Great as far as safety.. The Neighbors are stuck up and hateful tho very rude.n like being close to a gas station and restaurants

It's close to downtown, walkable even, which is convenient both for my job and for recreation. It's a fairly unique mix of old and new.

We live near a library and city park, which is convenient for walking by dog and taking grandchild to playground.

Beautiful environment, adequate security,I like to go shopping with my family in the nearby mal,The distance between living facilities is intense
