What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Athens

There is nothing particularly unique about my neighborhood. It is a residential neighborhood and so there really aren't any restaurants or stores within wa

My neighbors and it's not far from town and it's pretty secluded not a whole lot of people friendly neighbors

Country setting but yet short drive to town are my favorite things about where I live. I also like that its peaceful most of the time and very pretty in the fall.

I like how close I am to work. I also like that there are lots of places to eat or get coffee. It is a very walkable area, and I feel safe walking alone at night.

Easy access to food. There is strict Security and it is pet friendly area. People are always ready to help in times of need

You can access a lot of places fairly quickly if you live here, but if you stay in the neighborhood you would never know it.
