What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Royal Oak

Oak diner is just down the road is always good. Easy access to drive downtown or to get on The expressway to drive to a big city

My neighbors are also my friends. We meet daily at 5:30 to socialize. Just 2 blocks from main road that takes to thriving downtown 2 miles away. Great interesting stores and restaurants too.

There are parks all around my neighborhood and restaurants and stores that are very walkable. We like to go downtown because their are all kinds of shops and stores

Diverse, inclusive, and clean. It has all the necessary businesses within a close proxiimity so one does not have to venture far for basic needs, i.e. dry cleaning, restaurants, etc.

My neighborhood isn't unique in any way. I enjoy some of the restaurants in this area. I truly enjoy going up north

It's a calm and safe neighborhood. I feel comfortable taking walks or playing outside with my family.
