What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Emporia

I like that our neighbors are friendly, and that they are all willing to help each other out. If I go on vacation, I know I can count on my neighbors to keep an eye on my place/let me know if anything happens.

There are a lot of nice restaurants and coffee shops near by. The sidewalks ante ample and allow space for running

We have amazing parties in the area nearby. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. They care about my family as well.

My daughter has neighborhood kids to play with. Its a family friendly neighborhood. I would recommend my neighborhood.
