What Renters Like and Dislike About Great Falls

Filipino town. All of the people here don't go out of their houses I am really wondering why. I would need to go to the city to see some people around. I like going to the golden gate park

It is a relatively quiet neighborhood. Stores and professionals are within walking distance. Plenty of walking area for the pets.

Everything is in walking distance; there are lots of nearby restaurants to choose from, good public transportation, many cultural events, nice parks, close proximity to beaches, good jobs and schools.

It's very active at day and night and people light to walk a lot and everyone is super nice and friendly and would help you if your were ever on need

I like to go to restaurants or the movies with family. There's a place called the alley downtown and it has a lot of fun activities.
