What Renters Like and Dislike About Boone

There's a lot of other apartments nearby so theres a lot of other college kids. I like hyvee and its across the street. I like going to local parties with friends

Quiet, lots of trees, not far to main roads as well as Walgreens and a gas station, safe for the most part, older houses but most are well maintained.

The local YMCA and gym feels like home to me. Went to there programs as a child and played there. Now work there and have been using the gym for yearz
