What Renters Like and Dislike About Watertown

driveway. Access to bowling. Great plazas nearby that offer a variety of stores. The access to other towns via highway us convention. .

My neighborhood is very diverse and the neighbors are friendly. It is also pet friendly and a good spot to raise children.

My neighborhood is set far enough away from the town to feel exclusive. However, it is still very accessible to anything that could be needed.

We live in a older community so it get quiet at night. we have chickens and the neighbors are nice about it.

I like that everyone knows everyone. You rarely hear of a break in in the area. Very few murders and almost no drug use in the area.

It's a quite neighborhood and I have to go to the store and get some rest and feel better soon. I love the way you want me.

All About

Living in Watertown, NY

Discover the hometown charm of Watertown, a city named for the Black River that runs through it. Residents of this close-knit community of 26,000 enjoy fun local events and multiple outdoor recreation opportunities, all within proximity to Lake Ontario, the Canadian border and a variety of Watertown apartments to choose from.

The heart of Watertown lies in its Black River, a choice destination for kayakers and rafters. The less adventurous Watertown residents can watch the white-water action as they stroll along the river at the Veteran's Memorial Riverwalk. If you enjoy fishing or walking near the river, look for apartments near Waterworks and Marble Street Park in Watertown. About a mile south of the river in southwest Watertown is the historic Thompson Park, which has a children's playground, a New York State zoo, pool, golf and picnic areas, and it is the location for the Syracuse Symphony Concert in the Park on or around July 4 of each year.

Just a short drive from Watertown apartments are countless places to visit, such as The Thousand Islands, Bolt Castle, Sackets Harbor, Lake Ontario, the Canadian border towns and Adirondack Park Preserve. Also, a world of food is close to Watertown if you don't want to cook in your apartment kitchen; you won't have to drive far for winery tours, chocolate or the cheeses and maple syrup of Vermont. On Wednesdays, stop by Washington Street by City Hall for the farmer's market, which offers the freshest produce, homemade baked goods and arts and crafts for sale.

With so many living options, narrowing down your choices for Watertown apartments can be tough. You'll find numerous Watertown apartments available on ApartmentGuide.com, which can help you uncover the perfect Watertown neighborhood for you.
