What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Wheaton

I really like walking around during the daytime and going to the local park. I also enjoy being close to the metro station and socializing with my neighbors.

We have a lot of mid century modern homes designed by a famous architect. We have a really nice coffee shop. There's a lovely wine bar we always take visitors to.

I like the friendliness of all the people who live there. We are all willing to help each other out when ever needed.

something that is unique is that i live near a garden and where i live is quiet at night unlike other places were its loud

there is beautiful park and bike trail in our neighborhood, it is quiet and green, pet friendly,and elementary school
