What Renters Like and Dislike About Southgate

we are close to downtown detroit and canada. there's always something around here to do if you look hard enough

Quiet and safe . Bar restaurants are closeand have alot to choose from. Like taking grandkuds to parks,

I love living in a quiet neighborhood, lots of trees that make it very nice! Nice neighbors. I'm glad to raise my child in this neighborhood.

I can walk to at least 10 places to eat. I'm close to the theater. In general, it's an older neighborhood.

It is very country like out here in this area . Quite and safe place to live just need more places to have fun.

They give a good services , they clean every day the parking lot , the pool , they are very nice to??
