What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Colonial Heights

The closest store to me would be Food lion. There really isn't anything unique about the neighborhood.

its a alright neighborhood mostly quiet for most part friendly neighbors pets schools stores nearby.

large lots. private. family oriented. i have nothing else to say. this is 3 sentences. I am done.

I like that you can walk in peace during the night and walk your pets without any issues. There's also a lot of police presence so there's no need to worry about crimes in the area

There is a "Little Caesars" around the corner along with a "Mi Rodeo"(not a big fan). Then on the street over there is a park.

The park and school with lots of space is near by also the local football field and some baseball fields. Very quiet most of the time

After the show, if you still have the energy, you can get a drink at Applebee's on Temple Avenue.
