What Renters Like and Dislike About Lorain

I like that we are close to everything we need, we are by our favorite restaurant and stores. The neighbors seem really nice also

it is a retirement area which consist of 1 city block,not much traffic and we have all necessary businesses around us that we can walk too ss

Close to lake and park. Home near the police station. Rebuilding of the downtown area. More restaurants.

Neighbors get along. There ain't much to be happy about in this neighborhood. We like going away of The city to have family time

The restaurants around my community are very good, both in the taste and appearance of the food. I especially like to eat in this restaurant in my community

I like the neighborhood because I grew up here and I know quite a few people who live here. I have family who live in the same neighborhood. We have stores nearby for grocery shopping and restaurants, entertainment and parks close by.
