What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lancaster

It is quiet. It is secluded. Not far from other busier cities. Great location. Friendly neighbors. Lots to do. Plenty of amenities

I don't go alot of places, but like go out and but most time I go get it and bring food back eat and watch movies

Each house is on one acre so I have privacy. We also live 4 miles from shopping and restaurants. The neighbors are nice and look out for each other.

I like that we are far enough away from the city limits to feel more in the country , but close enough to be less that 5 miles from town.

My neighborhood is very different from other neighborhood because it is very quiet and everyone is very noisy and very watchful and they will call the police very fast on you

It is a historic city. This area was viewed as a 'Garden of Eden.' for the Native Americans, including the Cherokee, the Catawba, and the Waxhaw tribes.
