What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Dover

Friendly people as neighbors. Everyone talks to everyone around. Everyone enjoys living in the area. Plenty of things to do.

The neighborhood is rural and you have to have at least 3 acres so neighbors are not close. It is quiet except for occasional gunfire.

My neighborhood is unique because everyone watches out for each other, and local businesses that I like are our coffee shop and our pet shop and convenience store.

Convenience, great bars and restaurants within walking distance, easy access. Definitely absolutely certainly recommend to absolutely everyone because like oh my goodness it's so freaking rad.

We are in a farm community. We have some Italian restaurants close buy. We have local banks and hardware stores within 5 miles and grocery stores within 6 miles.

I really really really like the movie theater but it's really pretty. Yep we are probably still in bed but we can get together for a couple hours so I will let.
