What Renters Like and Dislike About Shelby

My neighborhood is quiet. Most of my neighbors are friendly. A lot and also have dogs like us. My neighborhood has 2 separate entrances which is unusual.

We have great local restaurants and bars, nightclubs in theater. We especially like to go to the nearby parks with all the lakes!

I live within a gated community that is within a very lovely higher end area. My area is great as it has tons of restaurants, pharmacies and grocery stores. I am also close, 2 miles from highways and only 10 miles from the beach.

Is in a neat area, close to bars, restaurant, grocery stores, is near my family and my work which is great.

Near to the beach and greats restaurants like olive gardens. I like the stores near here and the gym is really close
