What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Battle Creek

It is very quiet. Nearly every neighbor is friendly, yet there is always one who has a complaint. Our two block subdivision deadends both ways. I do not have any favorite shops bars or restaurants nearby. I do enjoy going to the arboretum for walks.

I don't feel there is anything unique other than it being the cereal capital! There isn't to much to do out here. I love to gather with my family at restaurants. I love my family period.. I love going to church and being around godly peoole

Nothing is super unique about my neighborhood. It is super close to factories. Its close to 2 very nice restaurants as well.

We have decent close neighbors that we get along well with. It is a great place during daylight hours, but at night is a different story. Noy an area where you would leave doors or windows unlocked.

Deer roam free and it's also close to the city. Plenty of local restaurants but no major chains. Nothing to do in battle creek.

I enjoy some of the neighbors I have met. Nothing really unique of our area. I usually dine elsewhere as there is not close places to eat around.
