What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About South Valley

Sadly there is nothing really good I guess we have a couple of good groceries store near by that's it

Most of the people around here have lived here there whole lives.They know each other well and keep in touch.I love the kind of food they have in the area mostly Spanish food.

It's vaxk yards are large it used to be farm land things are close together so you don't kneed to drive far.

There is a grocery store in our community, my friends and I often go there, there are many commodities to choose

My neighborhood is close to restaurants, and shopping centers that I enjoy walking to, or taking the bus to reach. The homes are charming with brick floors and corner kiva fireplaces. Another thing is the public transportation is closeby, and with access to other parts of our city, like uptown and downtown.

Nothing is unique. This is a very old neighborhood. Some of the stores are decent. There's nothing fun to do here.
