What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Carthage

It is a small town. There are restaurants near by. There is a park not that far from me. It is easy to walk around to get to things.

Having family and friends live nearby. Also having a decent amount of locations such as restaurants, plazas etc.

I really don't like living in my neighborhood at all so I can not really say

There are no restaurants in the country. There are no businesses close enough to walk to. Sit on the porch and yard. Visiting with the neighbors is the only thing you do socially out here.

Our neighborhood is friendly and we look out for one another. I love that there are shops, stores, and coffee just less than a mile away.

I like that it is in the heart of town. I live close to everything. I like being able to walk the neighborhood at anytime.
