What Renters Like and Dislike About Durham

All the stores close by and shopping centerparks school trails and even banks close to you and bus stops

All families with kids, but, not always loud, i lovev that. Also, there are lots good restaurants nearby

There is a mix of apartments, condos, and townhomes in the neighborhood. We are very close to most stores. Airport location is convenient.

I like most about my neighborhood that everyone looks out for everyone. I also like the fact that you do not have travel far for a nice casual restaurant and shopping.

It's a good school nearby and it's close to home, it's easy for the kids to go to school, it's a good school environment

My neighborhood is close to the highways and downtown. There are alot of nice restaurants nearby. My place of employment is less than 5 minutes away.
