What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Elgin

There isn't anything unique about my neighborhood. My favorite places to order takeout from are a local restaurant and a Chinese restaurant. They are both 5 minutes away. My family and friends don't live nearby.

Quietness, dead end, not much traffic, and close to grocery store. Mall within 15 miles ccc ccc ccc ccccc gggg hhhh

I love the Good Eats food truck. And though there is a neighborhood bar next door they do not allow motorcycle bikers to wear patches or be rude to anyone. Very close knit family atmospheree.

Family and friends like to go up to the restaurants in town to eat at the local eateries. Mexican food, pizza, barbeque restaurant.

1 I am close enough to neighbors to get help if I need it 2 I am near enough to local businesses to buy anything I need. 3 I am out in nature.
