What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bismarck

I like how friendly the neighbors are thruout, how quiet and clean it is. As well as how close to shopping and restaurants it is at. How well lit it is at night to be able to take night walks or bike

The favorite things are that it's so close to the hospitals,and grocery shopping options. It's within walking distance to an amazing local restaurant called little cottage cafe.

Well for 1 thing we are very close to a park for little kids & I love to entertain little kids & babies.

My neighborhood has parks. My neighborhood has schools. My neighborhood is close to hospitals. My neighborhood is safe.

Bar and restaurant, Rolling Stones and gas station, Starbucks and cold stone and Pizza Hut and golf. Purse
