What Renters Like and Dislike About South Lyon

Family friendly kids can safely play outside. A couple of bars, some mid scale restaurants, overload of fast food, low end restaurants mostly burger and a beer or pizza joints. the local parks

My neighborhood has a very quality cafeteria, small supermarkets have many retail stores, we like the weather, its people, the joy of all our neighbors, we like private security

We like that eveything is near by; Walmart, Target, Publix, Winn Dixie; coffee shops; and restaurants.

There are a lot of streets that let me not relax and I like my street very muchMy family has always lived here, too

I like that I'm not to far from night life. I like going to walk at the lake Eola park. I like the stores are walkable to.

We have lived her almost 20 years. We have raised our kids in this neighborhood. We can walk downtown. There is a trail near by that's beautiful to walk the dogs.
