What Renters Like and Dislike About Madison

It's close to everything fun, downtown, mountains, shopping. It's also next to light rail and easy to get places

We like to go for walks. There's a lot of open space for you to explore.my favorite places near by I a little bakery

Not much is unique about my neighborhood. I like going to the local bar with friends. I feel compiltely safe in my neighborhood. day and night.

Lots of new stores and cool restaurants and more young people now. It's such a cute little town with everything you need in 1 mile radius that is pretty amazing.

We like to go to nearby parks and walking trails. There are a couple good restaurants within walking distance.

There are many things I like about my neighborhood. Some things i enjoy are the parks are well maintained and you can travel places by walk without it taking forever.
