What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About La Porte

What I like most about living in my neighborhood is that fact that it is small. It is easy to know everyone in the area.

We have a huge pond with ducks in our neighborhood that you can fish in. There's a huge walking trail. Lastly we have a community only pool.

While there aren't many businesses within walking distance, the schools are. This neighborhood looks out for each other.

We have 2 gas stations near and a dollar general. Walmart and Kroger are only a 5 minute drive as well.

I love how upscale it is. Everyone maintains their homes and they're aesthetically pleasing. I love that the beach is just a 10 minute walk and I mostly love all the wildlife.
