What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Oswego

there is friendly neighborhood.lots of convinient restaurents. we like to go to the park.all the children play together.

The people are nice that's very unique nowadays my favorite local restaurants is McDonald's, burger king, subway I like going on walks with my family and friends in the spring and summer time and gonna swimming is so much fun

What I like best about living in my neighborhood is it is always quiet and peaceful and it is always safe there isn't any crime that happens in my neighborhood which I really appreciate and all of my neighbors are friendly and kind and we all look out for each other if anyone needed something everybody would help out if needed that's why I love my neighborhood.

Neighbors not on top of each other can walk on the street. I am able to work outdoors at night without disturbing the neighbors. I am allowed to have chickens.

I like being on a lake and plenty of events. The city also has great parks. There is also a lot of history.

It is quiet like being out in the country. It is near enough to the highway to get to any part of town effectively. There is easy distance to gas stations, stores, a hospital, and schools.
