No matter what part of Manhattan your apartment is in, you'll be close to natural splendors and recreational activities.

There are also 200 acres of hiking and horseback riding trails with camping areas and 16,000 acres of hunting grounds surrounding the lake.

Also not far from your apartment is Manhattan Linear Park Trail, which is a fun, 2-mile trail for hikers and bikers of different skill levels. For serious mountain biking, try the Fancy Creek State Park at Tuttle Creek Lake.

What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Manhattan

Everyone knows everyone. Most families have lived here for a long time. It has a lot of green space.

I like the pool and gym. The apartments are super nice and easy to find. Also the main city is only about 9 minutes away and so everything is relatively close and makes it super easy to get around town.

I like my neighborhood because I have very nice neighbors that help each other out if needed. I also like that I live close to running tracks and a park that I can walk to. I also love very close to stores that I can drive to.

This is a brand new apartment complex (2018) so I like that things are new and well maintained. As mentioned above, you do have to drive to get anywhere so it's only semi-close to coffee or restaurants. They do have a number of sidewalks which is nice, and they have a number of amenities. It's right next to a middle school and I see kids walking to school most mornings, and I know as a town, they provide a lot of services for kids (after school programs, sports, food, etc)

Yes I love my neighborhood because it's safe and family friendly, lots of older people live here that are very nice

My neighborhood has a lot of unique older homes, so that gives it a lot of character. I am close to Aggiville which has a lot of cute shops, as well as the downtown area, so that's always a fun activity to do with friends since it's so close.
