What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About McHenry

It's a very walkable neighborhood and safe. We live near the park and the neighborhood below us is along the river and very scenic

I enjoy the many restaurants. I also enjoy being close to the river.there are a lot of small businesses that create a lot of work and things to do near where I live. The school system is decent and is above the rest of the towns in my county.

I like that there are baseball fields in my area and a swimming pool a lot of kids playing outside it's really nice.

I like going to Walmart alot and the gas station which has a restaurant inside of it. I also like going to the park.

haveing yards and a local hot dog stand and we like walking to the near by lake and a little further down the beach
