What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Kansas City

I think we like going to the neighborhood lake. There is a library there that has special events that make it even better.

I like the racial, cultural, and ethnic diversity. I like the unique houses and buildings. Every day here is adventerous, and you discover who your real friends are very quickly.

There are multiple public parks near my house as well as schools close by. Also, there are grocery stores and other businesses that are within a comfortable walking distance.

Quiet neighborhood and nearby grocery stores and high ways. Unique because it's not crowded. Parks are close also

It is quiet and serene. It is affordable and the neighborhood is very friendly. There's a dollar store within walking distance which is very convenient.

There's alot to do in my area for adults teens and kids, it's a well rounded family area where all can go find food clothes or just have fun
