What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Sheldon

Lots of old, historic homes. Lots of beautiful huge trees. A couple of very nice retail areas nearby.

Is centrally located for my lifestyle,and I enjoy the company of my neighbors .They are all good people with a vested interest of keeping each other and our neighborhood safe and clean

It has an old town feel. We have very nice neighbors. Everyone tries to look out for each other when we can.

We live close to downtown. There is a park within walking distance. It is a quiet/ up and coming neighborhood.

we have a park next to us with lots of small restaurants in walking distance. good places to help families who needs help with anything and close to schools and library

I live in a neighborhood that has a neighborhood district, so there are shops, restaurants, bars, and businesses that are within walking distance. I do feel safe walking around in the neighborhood during the day. A lot of people do walk around the neighborhood district. There is an ice cream shop that we love to go to and a dinner that's within walking distance from our house. And a friend of mine likes going to a restaurant nearby. I do like this neighborhood because of the different ethnicities.
