What Renters Like and Dislike About Solvay

There are a few local parks right by a la mo ke, close to large shopping mall and the state fair. Good restaurants in under 10 minutes away. Quick to the highway, but also close to every store you could possibly need, or want. Lots of families and pets, gas stations close.
