What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Aurora

It is a very diverse area, There are plenty of musems and parks and forest presrves near fo outdoor activites. the shopping is very convnuent and always able to find what you are looking for considering the diversity of the area. Good hospitals and medical care , and we are not far from a major city which offers even more

My favorite restaurant is Nikkary's. My favorite business is Cermack. I also like to go to Harner's Bakery with my Friends..

Restaurants and bars I enjoy going to and hanging out with friends. Also just looking out the front window and enjoying seeing the changing of the seasons

My area has everything close by don't have to go far away if I need anything quick to pick up at a local grocery store

I own the house. It is mine. I can do whatever I want to it and I don't have to get a landlord's permission first or anything. It belongs to me and I couldn't be happier about that.

Fast food restaurants are easily accessible. Lots of kids play in the parks. It's a pet friendly area. Even if someone has no car they can walk up to schools, grocery stores, fast food chains, and pharmacy.
