What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About West Columbia

It's very quiet and safe. Many stores within a mile. Also, a couple golf courses nearby. It is also within 30 mins of the airport.

It close by stores . And close by things to do. And by tarpon springs. It nice biking. Good restaurant and bars

I like to go to restaurants with my family and friends. I also like the movie theater nearby. The community here is very nice and safe.

We have several great restaurants in the neighborhood that range from pizza, Italian, bars, sports bars.

Good schools around, and good businesses around. Great Jamaican restaurant around. And the zoo is down the road
