What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Louisville

It's near my family it's close to the grocery store it's close to convenient storess and restaurant I like going to movies and out to eat with family and friends

Like most of people in neighborhood. Have a park close by. Kroger store close by. I like going to church with my friends.

Cost of living and proximity to downtown. Easy access to interstate & direct access to downtown. Small business that are different than what you find in other parts of the city. Art spaces

Really don't like living here don't go anywhere to. Scared.cant go out without something bad happening

The most unique thing about my neighborhood is that I live in a house across from apartments that are also apart of the neighborhood. My favorite restaurant is Wendy's because their food is very good and affordable. Also, I like to walk with my friends to go downtown to do some shopping and hang out.

There are lots of eateries. Scenic areas, including dog parks, a cat Cafe, and a dog Cafe. I love all the restaurants as well.
