What Renters Like and Dislike About Nelsonville

Family and pet friendly. Nearby shopping. Many opportunities for dining. Great breweries and local bars.

Good Ice cream shop. Easy access to public transportation. It is quiet. Love having a gas station near by.

All neighbors know eachother. High school right across Street. Grocery store, great Mexican resturant, fast food all within 5-10 milea; walking diatance

I enjoy living here there is a good park near by and lots of nice people around. No one seems too mean or angry.

It's a pretty calm community with a wide assortment of people. It's not very far from most of the things I like to do either, and it's very close to my work.

It's quiet, family oriented, safe, close to work, restaurants, and stores. There are also several parks and walking trails nearby.
