What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Rocky Mount

Quiet. And stores and restaurants are nearby and feel like a friendly community. Being in a small town also helps with the feeling of community

Honestly I don't feel like anything is unique about my neighborhood but I do live near the shopping center in my city.

The quietness and the nice looking neighborhood and the kind people that live around here and the friendliness of the people.
