What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Oxford

Everyone knows everyone else. The neighborhood is quiet and neighbors look out for each other. They will call if they see something suspicious.

The most unique thing about my area is that we are in the country but town is only a couple of blocks away. When going out with family/friends, we let everyone put in their choice of where to go and go to the most popular. There are so many choices to choose from since it is a college town.

Being safe and my children can play outside without being scared or someone walking up to them. Plus my dogs always protect my kids from any danger

I enjoy walking down town as well as being close to the necessities such as a grocery store and gas station.

I like how family friendly everything is in the neighborhood. Feels very much a safe place to call home.

I love my neighborhood because everyone is so friendly. All the kids know each other and play well together. Also, we all watch out for each other.
