What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Wilson

My favorite food and coffee is close by. I like going to restaurants and bars. We have festivals every November with live music.

Everything is unique soooooooooooooooo I love the environment for my kids and other kids as well. I can walk to the grocery store it takes 6 minutes to get

There are a lot of restaurants near by that have delicious food and if you need it delivered there is easy access for that. If you need public transportation it is available

I like the restaurants here, the food there is very delicious, the service is very good, let me feel full of happiness, the nearby traffic is also very convenient

The closeness we all seem to share over the years improvements to the parks and swimming pool and the base ball diamonds

Out to the beach the park bowling swimming lakes going out if town hunting down for doing anything..
