What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Brighton

The most unique thing about where I live is that I can easily walk to a river and a lake. That's why we moved here.

There is only 3 gas stations around you have to go far away to get to the nice restaurantt.Its quiet around the neighborhood but it's still crime and violence.

I like knowing all my neighbors and most of them since I was a child. When we have cook outs it's not just immediate family but the neighbors as well

Nothing and favorite restaurant is red lobster top crab good we got a lot of sea food places not a lot of loyal females tho

I like to go to the amusement park and the cinema, because it can make me feel the beauty of life and also make my children feel happy

I like going to the park and the supermarket, because it can make me and my child feel the beauty of life, and it can also make my child feel happy
