What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Towson

I like my neighbors they are all nice and polite and caring. I like how we all work together to keep our neighborhood clean

I love all the different beaches we have were kids go swimming. There's a lot of parks as well for children to play.

I love the climate and scenery of my neighborhood. It is quiet, so we can hear the waves of the ocean at night. We have lots of nice restaurants and shops as well.

The house is nice and affordable, something unique is that me and family talk to our neighbors sometimes my favorite local business is stokos and the corner

I love the amount of nature, a lot of trees and a nice field to play in with a playground. When it rains outside it is also peaceful I go outside and stand in the rain.
