What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bowie

I like that I am within minutes of the major highways, big cities. There are alot of restaurants, shop's & entertainment

The thing that is most unique about the neighborhood I live in would be the amount of diversity and the amount of pets. We have a lot of pets on our street. I love going to a nearby park with my family and friends, we also enjoy going to the nearby library as well.

Well we do have good places that to shop in close vicinity. And some most of them are walking distance

I like that there is mostly convenient parking. We are close to a city but have the benefit of a lot of green spaces to be out in

There's a lot of good restaurants. Also a lot of parks. If you're an adult over 21 there are a lot of college bars.

It's quiet 99% of the time. Great for day sleepers. The fact that most homes have people who have been here for over 5 years adds to the stability and comfort.
