What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Woodlawn

The neighborhood is small. It is quiet. We mind our own business and we live our lives day to day.

I live close to everything there are several restaurants there is a mall there are several shopping centers everything is within walking distance I mean as long as you can walk a mile or two. There is also a large Walmart nearby which I frequent quite often.

I like my neighborhood because it's in the center. There are many stores so I don't have to go far to go shopping or go far to get anything.

It's quiet. It's nice and affordable. Pretty. I feel safer here than in the city . We live in the county anyway

I like that there are good schools in the neighborhood to choose from. There are multiple elementary, middle, and high schools in the area.

A lot of my friend live around here, and I like walking around the neighborhood and there's a nearby playground.
