What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Des Plaines

There isn't really many places to go with friends and family. The downtown area need to be revitalized.

My neighborhood has lots of ethnic groups.they are friendly i have learned thier culture.my kids get exposed to lots of cultures.here we have mexican Indian arabic chinese restaurant .we go to parks with our families

I am an old single guy so I don't go any place with anyone. We have a pool. We have a park with tennis courts. We have Portillo's restaurant nearby.

Grocery and restaurants are close by. Parks and playgrounds are plentiful. The park district is very good.

I really like the view of our neighborhood and the bistros nearby. It's nice to go and have a drink after work and relax. And it's quiet nearby and there are parks to exercise in

The neighborhood is quiet, both during the day and night, not a lot of traffic in the streets, well maintained lawns with a courtyard in the middle
