What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Shippensburg

talk with neighbors/friendly; easy access to grocery stores and my church; friends live on same street and nearby ones

I like that my neighborhood is not in the center of town. There is no traffic close to me, yet it is a short drive into the heart of town to grocery stores, banks, etc. I like my neighbors. I can go outside and feel safe. My kids can enjoy playing outside.

We like that we are close to town but not directly in town. The neighborhood is friendly. The neighbors are neighborly and the kids can play together outside. There is wildlife and green space.

Just about anything you would want or need is within three miles.there is a large playground near nearby. Many local small restaurants nearby. Three state parks within twenty miles.

I like my neighbor hood because my Friends live nearby. I also like it because it very peaceful and quite.

There is a lot of space to do stuff. It is usually pretty quiet. There is a dollar general a mile down the road.
