What Renters Like and Dislike About Jackson

Neighborhood is 20 minutes away which is fairly close. We have lots of property for kids and family to have fun.

I like the most about my neighborhood I live close to stores. I like going to the park with family and friends.

There isn't really anything unique about my neighborhood at one point and time it's was thriving but now it's just ran down , it is close to my favorite restaurant cookout and it's conveniently close to several stores I frequently shop at

They is a local grocery store nearby and gas station real close so you don't have to go farther away

Like going to restaurants an out to flea market. Also like going to the river an parks . My favorite restaurant is chilis

McDonald's is a mile away. Drug stores are close by, also. Other fast food restaurants are nearby for quick use to get burgers, chicken, and fish.
