What Renters Like and Dislike About Bowling Green

It is piece of nature , no bars , no stores . House is almost in forest. With family we go to downtown to visit some restaurants or stores . By car it takes 15 minutes

Favorite place to eat in this neighborhood is Theresa's. Home made meals but only open from 7am till 11am.

Neighborhood gathering, cookouts. Fast food, and gas stations near by. College town and lots of Sporting events.

My neighborhood is near schools and parks. Going to the local Boba lounge. My friends like Going to the mall.

I would like to have grocery stores a little closer, but I do like being in the country with most of the municipal conveniences. I enjoy the tree lined streets.

I like to go to the park and watch people walk by and frequent the local restaurants and night life
