What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Worcester

I love how peaceful it is in my neighborhood. We are in the city but do not have to deal with the noises.

I don't really think anything is unique but I live right near a shopping plaza with Burlington and dollar tree. My family loves to go there and get crafts to do together

The scenery where I live is beautiful. There are some really great seasonal views of the woods and some gorgeous hiking trails right in my back yard.

it's a lot of stuff to do when you're at home bored or just wanna get out and have fun there's fast food

I really like that none of my neighbors are nosey and that there is a very nice park about 500 feet away from the apartment that my wife and I live in.

It is very close to shopping areas and banks etc. I do not have to go far for anything that I need.
