What Renters Like and Dislike About Garland

Convenient to the main highways. Near local shops and restaurants. A catholic church walking distance

I grew up here. Went to the school that was nearby. And it had a great reputation. I'm not embarrassed by where I live.

Nothing really unique about it. Same as any other basic middle class. We have close stores to do all mayor shopping. Family outing includes going to restaurants near the lake.

Its out in the country but close to town. We have everything we need between us and the city limits. Churches, restaurants, Auto repair. we try to visit a different restaurant once every 2 weeks,.

We have a water park. We have two skating rinks. We have a skate park. We have tennis courts, parks.

Kroger is right around the corner, McDonald's right around the corner, nice neighbors, convenient, quaint houses, and very good pet friendly.
