What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Harrisburg

near local shopping and restaurants - like going to restaurants Unique are the ponds that we can walk around that usually have ducks on them with friends - no family here

For me I like the neighborhood because I'm in a disability I'm in a chair and I can get around in my chair near grocery stores near pharmacies near places that I go so for me it's convenient and it's also near a bus stop in case I needed to catch the bus

It's quite and has a lot of lighting and there is always people at home we have a place that has a pool table and a swimming pool in it

I like how it is well kept and how clean everyone's yard and house looks. It is very pristine. I love going to the ice cream shop with my family and friends nearby and running on the trail near the river.

I love that we have a park so close. It is easy to walk around our neighborhood and I love the families that are around us.
