What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Mount Vernon

I like living so close to all the stores and restaurants and having neighbors who are nice. We also have good schools.

One last night you were going on to the snap. Thank Bayley is you how much you are looking beautiful as you always.

that the people are nice, kids can play outside and everything we need is in walking distance and very pretty

My neighborhood is within reasonable walking distance to my work, which is an incredible bonus. There are quite a few shops around and within walking distance as well, which is great for someone like myself who doesn't drive.
