What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Meridian

There in nothing unique. It is a typical quiet family oriented neighborhood We don't really go anywhere except for wals or bike rides in the neighborhood..

Our neighborhood is close to both work and groceries. It is easy to get where I need to. I wish there were more restaurants and shops on this side of town.

I know all of my neighbors. I like living so close to parks. Also, close to freeway. Easy walking access to entire downtown area.

close to stores, quiet, safe and free from crime. close to drug store, great neighbors. close to many food services

Close to great shopping and many restaurants and gyms to go to. Coffee shops are close by along with schools in the neighborhood.

We have a small neighborhood pool and basketball court. Lots of people walking dogs and kids, so there are a lot of active nice people.
