What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Marion

What I enjoy about our neighborhood is that the local government fires a good job to maintain the historical homes and buildings in the areas. In the town square which is composed of several historical buildings also sits on a road that eas part of three Lincoln Highway.

We like to go to the ice cream shop with the children. And we the neighbor parents we occasionally go to the bar. We have a good time.

I like the it is a court so we do not get to much trafic but the road right outside of our court is extremely busy. I like going to Duncan doings with friends.

Near stores, friendly and very safe. Feel safe walking after dark. Beautiful sunset at night. I like going to playground with my grandchildren. Easy to sit outside with friendly neighbours.
