What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Norton Shores

Located 10 minutes from half dozen restaurants 5 minute walk to gas station, 5 minutes to court house or Walmart.

I live on a dead end street. My backyard is half woods that go down an incline to a creek that goes into the lake We daily have deer in our yard. The grocery store and restaurants are not far away

It's generally quiet, and the people are mostly friendly. It is only a 5-15 minute drive to most places I need to be.

Close to stores and parks and schools. Big back yard with a lot of room for kids to play and dog to run.

I like that it's a safe neighborhood and we have a variety to choose from when it comes to cuisine. We are very lucky that we have a lot of good local restaurants.

the pool and the park is very fun to hang out with friends.also my garage is very cooling to me and love it.
