What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Kannapolis

It's a bigger city with small town feel. Friendly people and coffee shops. Always something to do. There's also a true downtown nearby and it's always well lit.

No businesses near by. Not a lot of traffic. Neighbors are friendly towards one another. Blah blah blah blah blah. Yadda yadda yadda yadda.

I like living in the business district and going to restaurants and bars. My friends and family like to go there

I love that it's quiet . I love that it's not slot If loud music and drama . Everyone is friendly.

I like it because it is quiet. I like it because the neighbors are friendly. Our neighborhood is pet friendly.

There's not a lot of trouble or shooting in the area I live in. Also not many people bother me here.
