What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Geneva

The people are friendly. There is a school very close. There is lots of ponds. Grocerie stors and restaurants and close by.

The most unique about our town is it's an old beautiful historical town. Favorite local businesses I would never want to list because I live in a town with too many tourists so the local hotspots are quaint and not filled with tourists. I love taking my family to local post parks.

I enjoy how close I live to my college campus which makes transportation very easy for me. I also like how it is easy to walk to pretty much everything I need on a daily basis.

Out to the variety of restaurants. Shopping at the commons. Taking walks around the neighborhood. Going to the movies.
