What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Fredericksburg

My neighborhood is close to 2 major highways. It is also less that 5 minutes from the local grocery stores.

It is convenient to the things I need without being major-city dense. Also, there is a library across the street.

I am not sure what to say. This is a unique spot. There are a lot of trees here. It is a small town.

It's walking distance to a lot of places and there's a walking path nearby. Also there's a park nearby too.

It is a great location, the neighborhood is in the middle of the city; 10 minutes to downtown one way and 10 minutes into central park, stores, etc~ the other.

The neighborhood is filled with active military personal that are moved every couple of years. The sidewalks are large so family can walk and kids can ride their bikes.
