What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bloomington

It's quiet. The people are really nice. Lots of shopping very close and public transportation is close and available.

Nothing really unique about it. Enjoy Golden Wok and Luna do Luna restaurants. We go to those same places with friends and also to church.

Very friendly neighbors. We help each other. Kids all get along. Not sure what else to say neighbors help move my snow

I love how accessible restaurants are. I'm olive close to several grocery stores and there's a lot of schools near me and parks that kids can walk to

In our neighborhood, there are many things that my friends and I can do, such as going to restaurants, spas, and swimming pools

Very friendly people, lots of access to walking trails, get to see deer and foxes occasionally and lots of pretty birds
