What Renters Like and Dislike About Salisbury

The feel. We like to walk to the cemetery around the way..I don't know what else you want me to say.

I like how it is spread out - the houses aren't too close together. There is a park down the street, as well as a horse farm. I also like seeing the various animals - cows, goats, etc - when we drive down our street.
