What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bardstown

I like my neighborhood because is it cozy and just outside the city limits. We are only a couple of miles from shopping and groceries. We are also just a couple miles from many restaurants.

I haven't lived here very long. Still figuring out what is around. Most businesses close around 10 or 11 pm.

You can literally walk around the whole town and make it back to your house in about an hour. And plus, it's also fairly quiet.

??A great neighborhood must be a place where people have an opportunity to walk safely, with meaningful destinations. ?Great neighborhoods also need nearby amenities for those residents to meet, recreate or learn.They might also include a quality school, a local park, or a walking or biking trail.

One thing I really love about living in my neighborhood is how close-knit and friendly we all are with each other. It's nice knowing you have people around who care. We also have several different locally owned restaurants nearby that are really good and enjoyable to go to.
