What Renters Like and Dislike About Richardson

I like the peacefulness of my neighborhood and the accessibility to major highways. There are also good grocery stores and diversified restaurants nearby. The restaurants are excellent and are very convenient.convenient

Parks and walking trails. A variety of restaurants displaying different cultures. Low crime great to raise kids.

It's pretty quiet. There are nicely kept neighborhoods. It's a pretty clean area. There a lots of office buildings if people are looking for work.

people decorates for seasons. there is a home creating a book exchanging stand in front of his house. We like to go to the park nearby the house

Not many restaurants I like are close but can jump on the hwy. There's a drive thru Starbucks very close. Lots of people walk and walk their dogs-vrry friendly to animals.

It has whole foods here which is great. Got a lot of sushi and quick food option. Also an expensive steak house and french bistro
