What Renters Like and Dislike About Eldridge

Kids can play outside! It is quiet and people respect each other! We like to go to the library and the local grocery.

Schools nearby, Immediately being able to jump onto the highway and get to the destination. All my friends

My neighborhood is well settled with many houses and owners having lived here for more than 30 years. My neighborhood is in a small town, so local businesses are almost all within a 5 mile radius. My family lives 5 miles from me, so it is easy to visit with one another.
