What Renters Like and Dislike About Plano

There is an abunce of great restaurants and shopping. Good parks and long trails. Close to many sporting venues.

It's a nice area, there are trails, ponds, and parks in my neighborhood. Beautiful scenery and a dog park, veterans memorial park.

The location of my neighborhood is very convenient. The houses are well maintained and there is quick access to shopping, eating, church and schools. I absolutely love the location.

What is unique is the proximity to downtown. The restaurants nearby are locally owned shops. The people are friendly and everyone knows each other.

My apartment is near a bike path that leads to parks and shopping areas. There are three grocery stores that are about a mile to less than two miles away. That's an easy walking distance for me. There are two convenience stores that are about a quarter to half a mile away.
