What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Wichita

There is nothing unique about this neighborhood. I dont have a favorite business. I like going anywhere with family and friends.

Since the area is in downtown a lot of restaurants and coffee shops are usually walking and/or biking distance from my house. It's a quiet neighborhood so not too many noise complaints or issues of the sort to report.

Like I said it's a pretty busy neighborhood there are restaurants there's a Dollar tree a dollar store. And this is within walking distance there's a school of right down the street. So there's a lot of things that nature to do like I said before I would like to see an activity center for the elderly.

The thing that is most unique about the neighborhood I live in would be the amount of diversity and the amount of pets. We have a lot of pets on our street. I love going to a nearby park with my family and friends, we also enjoy going to the nearby library as well.

It's close to hospitals, food and a grocery stores such as dillions, pizza hut and spangles. My neighbors to the sides of me are decent and watch over my house when they know I'm not home.

Our neighborhood is a suburb of a larger City but it feels very relaxed and subdued there are lots of trees and lakes and Parks.
