What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Augusta

Safe to be outside and friendly people. They have local shops to buy ice cream and candy. There is restaurant's available like fast food and local sit down restaurants.

No one is neighborly. Closest business is a liquor store and a grocery shop. There's no restaurants at this end of town, just a Cemetery.

School and store is nearby you can walk to school playground. However town is boring but neighborhood is great

I like that it is quiet. It is close to our church. The grocery store is close. Neighbors are willing to help each other and look out for each other.

I have 2 great neighbors, stores are less than a mile, 1 park but have to drive to it. All there is , is fast food. I cook at home. We have a good bar but expensive.

The people and convenience of walking to places. We live near a park and the library.
