What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Harlingen

Park is where everyone gets together once a month and put on a pot luck with deserts. And if want to go out there close by nite clubs

That the grocery stores are right there, and there are many fast food areas. Some schools are withing walking distance for Mt children

It's close to stores and local restaurants and my kids school and also next to parks and also a small neighborhood not to big

It's quiet and peaceful. It's very close to grocery stores, restaurants and our medical center. We live near the schools.

Most everything is in walking distance and can go jogging very early morning so that could everyone take part in community safety

It is easy to travel, a variety of destinations that are not too far away and the traffic is manageable
