What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Petal

Its unique because it's all older houses. There's an Italian restaurant right across the street from us. And there's a couple very well kept parks nearby

Close to shopping and restaurants. Near my doctor's office. Neighbors know each other well. The homes on my street are owned by families that have lived here for over thirty years. Some houses have second and third generations taking ownership of thehousr.

Pretty distant from most neighbors. Most people stay to themselves. Mostly quiet area. Outside of town but only about 10 minutes from town.

It is out in the country and is nice and quiet. There is lots of room to do things. I enjoy being outside in the yard.

Restaurant are all around.i like the jobslike wow the jobs are great. I make good money where I work

I love all my neighbors. The houses and yards are nice. if you don't feel like running to town and you're out of sugar you can always ask your neighbor. We borrow tools and lawn mowers and things back and forth. We're not far from Walmart. All in all it's a wonderful neighborhood to live in.
