What Renters Like and Dislike About Gurnee

We live by a golf course. We have easy accessible to the tollway. Steven's restaurant.We gave Gurnee donuts. We are close to 6 flaggs

Sandwiched between 2 not so great towns, love Timothy o tooles and oberweis icecream and we like to go out to eat and get pizza at giradanos in town.

People are friendly.They have cafes that are a bike ride away. The police and fire department is close. The are plenty of restaurants like Le Taco Norte. Or stevens Point and Chocolate sanctuary that has nice brunches on the weekend.

It is very quiet here. Everyone takes care of their lawns. Lots of nature here. You can see foxes, birds, ducks.

small neighborhood parks are within the area, it has its curfews at 9 pm, Mcdonalds and wendys are near by.

My neighborhood is warm friendly and safe. It has many local restaurants that deliver delicious foods well.
