What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Dallas

It's very close to a lovely lake. There are lots of good restaurants. It's a fairly diverse area regarding cultures and languages.

I like the options of shops that are not too far from where I live, you cam slate or bike or even walk there in a certain amount of time. There is also a family diner nearby that my family goes to often for breakfast.

The neighborhood is clean and almost safe, The architecture of some buildings and houses is nice. there are rich people in out neighborhood

not much unique. there is a nice bar down the road where everyone knows each other. other than that, not much reallly

Farmers market, downtown, beautiful historic buildings, parks everywhere, the city noise, bars everywhere, networking events, music blasting out into the streets from every restaurant or seven eleven.

It's located by town east a popular mall and many store surrounding it like big names restaurants and stores
