What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Ann Arbor

My neighborhood has a lot of diversity as a university town. I work across the street from where I live. I frequent bars/restaurants across from where I live, so I walk.Conor O'Neill's Irish Pub, Of Rice and Men, Blue Llama Jazz Club, The Black Pearl. I go there with family and friends.

My neighborhood is unique in that it is small and tight knit. My favorite local businesses are the local breweries and local Mexican restaurant and I like going there with my friends and family, as well as on hikes and outdoors

There is nothing particularly unique about my neighborhood. It's close to shopping. My friends and I like to walk in the nearby park with our dogs

It is a very quiet area with many mature trees. It is quite beautiful and pleasant. Most people seem to take care of their properties but it is not so upscale that you don't feel comfortable. It also has a good mix of singles, families, young and old and pets as well.

I like that it's a lot of restaurants down here. I like that there are some affordable houses down here. They are pet friendly.

I like that my neighborhood has a local dog park. I also enjoy that there are sidewalks. I like to go to the park with my friends.
