What Renters Like and Dislike About Benton

All the neighbors treat one another like famiky. All the women go out to lunch one a month. Everyone keeps their yard looking nice

love our mayor who well maintains our little town, two great city parks, nice local small stores and resturants. with soccer fields

I love how peaceful it is. I love that I know all my neighbors. I love all the trees and fields that are around our house.

I like it because it is quite and nice. My friends and I can ride our bikes around. We can also hang out.

I like that it is in walking distance of several store, the school, library, and a couple of play areas for the children.
