What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Claiborne

We are the last street in the city limits and we are very convenient to grocery stores, churches, banks, pharmacies, etc. all or within a mile drive

What is unique is we have so many trees. We feel safe to walk all over the neighborhood. Everyone is friendly.

The public bus system is a good thing. And you can walk to any store you want to. The kids in the area are very vulnerable to the violence in this area everyone want to be a thug it is crazy.

Quiet and rural area. Family lives near us. We have a large area of land for all activities. We love going out to eat at restaurants.

Distant neighbors to some degree and still all my culture in this area. The schools are still some of the best in the entire state as well.

I like the fact that its a gated community and going to my favorite restaurant with my neighbor and her friend.
