What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lafayette

My favorite restaurant is Wendy's..I love going to the fishing park with my family.1 unique about my neighborhood is that it is very strict.

It is an older neighborhood with a mix of elderly and families with kids. We are close to a grocery store and a mall with restaurants and a bank.

I love my apartment. It's in a less desirable neighborhood, but I love my home. Just wish there wasn't an apartment above me.

We are very close to downtown as well as park with swimming pool. I also like the fact that the parkside diner has recently reopened in its original location.

People aren't all in others busy being nosey, it's quiet and the neighbors look out for other houses. The police doesn't harass people, and the store are in a convenient distance if car stopped working.

My neighborhood is in a great part of town in reference to restaurants. There is no noise in our neighborhood for the entire day.
