What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Fairwood

the grocery stores around here are easy to get to and somewhat safe to shop at. i wouldnt be caught walking at night, as there are crazy people at night everywhere

There are some pretty local parks and stores within walking distance. Golf courses and downtown is within fives drive from neighborhood.

I like how safe the neighborhood is and hoe there are tons and tons of kids living around near here.

I like that the grocery store is close. And also there are food places and drug stores and banks nearby.

The unique thing about my neighborhood is that there is just about everything you could need within walking distance
