What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About El Paso

I love knowing my neighbors been here for years. The traffic isn't bad at all and lots of restaurants and cafes. We have a Waterpark, sports and other entertainment fairly close.

i like that we can walk outside peacily. it has many stores and business waking distance. you can find anything you need close to house.

Theres a few streets down a high school and its its off the 1-10 ramp there's a few food places and also a gas station you can just walk up to

It is peaceful and quiet. I have a beautiful view of the mountains. All services are nearby but not in the neighborhood.

My place is unique for the trees and scenery. I also enjoy the parks and cool restaurants.it also has heb and cool shops.

The people here are nice. It's on the outskirts of an urban city. it's a quote place to live and the houses are new.
