What Renters Like and Dislike About Amherst

Within a mile we have one of the biggest State university. Within a 9 mile radius we have have the 5 college system. Offering many events for students and families in our area, as well as restaurants and sport bars.

My favorite local businesses is Antonio pizza because its great. In addition, I like going with family and friends the places that are familiar to me.

I like having a park outside my house living close to the public transport is very nice and its convenient to have a grocery store next to the house.
