What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Okemos

Shopping and local markets are all close to home, farmers market in summers, heritage sites and antique/ boutique shops.

It is in a safe area. It is right next to a ton of stores and restaurants. A park is very close. The college is close.

I can see the capital of Lansing from the road I live on. It very easy to get to stores or other places in a decent amount of time. I enjoy going out to eat downtown close to the capital.
