What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Alton

That some of the stores are near by, and that is close to my familys house. I also like that we have added a fence and now we get a little more privacy. Which is needed in this neighborhood

What I like about my neighborhood is that the people or neighbors are friendly and they say hi and such. Plus every once in a while they do outside things when my family is doing things and it feels like a big family.

Simple and nice rural aesthetic, it's calm on most days. I also enjoy the general friendliness of the animals.

I am close to driving, but not walking. My friends are close, but family is by driving. I really like where I live .
