What Renters Like and Dislike About Auburn

Bbg was a really good game but it would have to go back home to get a gift from you but you can do a good game but it won't be a game pass it to get the money you need it is ok to play me and it is ok.

Very diverse. People from all walks of life. Friendly. Inviting. Ezells famous chicken. Catfish corner. African American museum.

It is sizable neighborhood with area to walk around and drive. There are alot of schools nearby to go

There are plenty of amenities. Parks are plentiful and have room for all sorts of events. Numerous sports leagues for kids.

People are very friendly My favorite place is bad pizza pizza I like going to ruby Tuesday on the weekends with them

It is very close to the grocery store and some restaurants and we are very close knit. There are also many places to walk/ parks for kids.
