What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Baraboo

Noyhing it is an average neighbourhood some lawns are Nice but others are not I would like to see brighter lighting in the area

The scenery, how close we are to nature parks, the river is close the river walk is fun and our flea market

Well right down the road we have our park and zoo, if we go down broadway you have a bunch of different restaurants including some really good burgers, a classic style breakfast joint. Its all very welcoming for being a smaller town.

I can walk to gas station. There is flower shop next door.It took awhile but my neighbors are pretty friendly

I like being within walking distance to downtown. The access to nature is very important to me. I'm a few miles from a large state park and I love being able to go whenever I want to. There are a lot of jobs in the tourism industry as well so it's not hard to find employment.
