What Renters Like and Dislike About West Fargo

I like the friendly people that live in my neighborhood. I also like the wide, well lit streets. It is also close to main thoroughfares.

close to a grocery store, gas station, hospital, restaurants, lots of families live here, close to a freeway and not far from downtown.

I am within walking distance of Walmart and McDonald's and other stores. Not very far from other restaurants too.

Family friendly. People keep to themselves and lots of kids to play and the neighborhood is safe for the children. The kids all get along here.

Our neighbors are amazing. I love how convenient our neighborhood to stores and restaurants. It's super easy to get To.

It is quiet. There are lots of kids and families in the neighborhood. It is close to the grocery store and other shopping
