What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About McLean

I love that's it's close to the city yet so feels like it's in the country. All of the stores are locally owned. Many of the stores sponsor local community events. There's also a lot of parks and there's a superb community center for recreational needs.

The easy access to everything in surrounding area. The people here are friendly and willing to help.

I like how its a suburban neighborhood while still being close enough to down town so that you still get to experience the city. Everything is so easily accessible and its really close to everything.

Its a quiet neighborhood, Many nice young families as well as older people. It has a grocery store right next to my condo. I walk with my wife around the condo when the weather is good.

We have many various restaurants with home feeling decorum. My favorite is the local pizza shop as they have the best slices

I have a short commute to work. The area is convenient and stores are accessible. We really enjoy going to D.C. for dinner.
