What Renters Like and Dislike About Collegeville

Our neighborhood is close to shopping and restaurants. It's close to malls and outlets. Also has big box stores close and highways to get you around quicker

Our neighbors are very friendly and supportive. They are very good and caring and responsible and smart and reliable

Close to Wegmans and other good shopping across the street are baseball fields, and a very nice playground and swing area and even some thing for hockey and the schools are close by as well as a Christmas tree farm that has activities in the fall and winter. It is close to Wegmans at a movie theater and a target as well which is very convenient.

to the mall. the mall isn't far away from me about half an hour. so for some people it would be annoying. it's not close it's not in walking distance but it's nixe

Out to dinner and lunch. Sometimes we go to the movies and get ice cream. Could also go shopping. Red Robin is my favorite.

The uniqueness is that we have families from many cultures and nationalities. We have Wegmans nearby and also other restaurants and a movie theater too. We love to go to the parks, the closer restaurants, and the movie theater.
