What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lorton

Neighbors are friendly. They keep their yards looking good. They are always supporting when we have neighborhood meeting about how we can better help one another. It is close to several walking paths and parks

Overall very nice inside. Offer decent amenities there is pool and a gym and movie theatre and they host monthly activities

More local restaurants and food places that's unique to the area. I feel like when I go to other areas that they have like hometown favorite foods. Food places that when you go to that certain city it's native.

The things I like most about living in my neighborhood are, the convenience of different solace to get food or snacks and water and grocery stores.

I like that everyone here has known each other since we moved in. We used to have parties for everyone but stopped once people started moving away.

My friends and family are my favorite thing. I also like the food and the shellfish. Lobster is great
