What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Los Alamos

I like being near grocery stores, downtown, shopping, banks and other necessary places to do business and live. Neighbor is quiet but close to things you need.

There is a great park nearby. Easy to get around. Lots of free activities. Can walk to stores and lots of local charter. And a really great bar..

I love going bowling and to the gym with my family. It's a lot of places to eat and things to do. The neighbors get together for social gatherings.

It's a central location to everything close by military base. School right down the street with a play ground

The neighborhood is unique because it is blessed with similar homes within relatively the same price ranges,

I love how close I am to trails for hiking. I'm only about a half hour drive from two national parks in my area. Love the scenic views!
