What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lawton

It's just enough people out here to not be alone. But to many people get to close to have the true country feel and experience.

We've lived here a long time and we know quite a few neighborhoods. The neighbors are friendly and helpful if you need them.

Its unique becasue its got local bussiness, and bars and restaurants near, and its also for family and friends.

My neighborhood is quiet but central to many things in town. We are unique because we are a mix of older houses and many newer larger homes as well. Our neighborhood is also a part of a higher ranking school district.

What is unique about my neighborhood is that it is one of the few neighborhoods in my city that have community mailboxes. I love where I live because if I found myself without a vehicle, I could literally walk to wherever I needed to go. There is a Walmart, a grocery store, a drug store, a bank, a couple of churches, and convenience stores. For some reason, in my neighborhood, there are a lot of fast food restaurants so you never get bored with eating out..

It's a quiet less traveled through neighborhood. Close to places like Home Depot, Big Lots, and restaurants. It's not directly on a through street which makes it less traveled and quieter.
