What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Saginaw

Quiet neighbors and close to a school and a lot of elderly people the yards are nice and that's of stuff to do

I like my neighbors that I live by. There are also the most popular restaurants nearby that are less than 5 minutes away. There is also a lot of employment here.

Nothing is really unique. But there's a lot of small cocktail bars and restaurants. I dont really go out

What do I like about in my neighborhood is that it's very peaceful in the morning! I'm honestly really glad we're close by a small and Kroger's?

I Love the location. I live in Orlando FL, and my neighborhood is close to everything. Close to highways so easy to travel to other areas.

Here is a small bar, is I often go to, and familiar with the neighbors and friends occasionally together drink and chat, I really like this atmosphere.
