What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Frankfort

There's really not much I like about my neighborhood. To much crime in my neighborhood. There isn't anything local.

My neighborhood is unique because all of the homes are Tudors built in the 30s. It has a very storybook feel. People take good care of their homes and love to decorate them during the holidays.

We are the Capital city, so it's a tourist destination. Lots of unique shops, bourbon distillers and festivals.

Being close to work and being close to stores. There are many ways to get somewhere in walking distance

i like having many food places near me to walk to whenever i get hungry and don't want to cook anything.

Sad to say there is absolutely no where in my neighborhood that I like going. I go outside my neighborhood to go some where fun or decent.
