What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Salinas

How peaceful and friendly it is when compared to to other neighborhoods. It is very nice to live in.

Restaurant park and store with my friends and family thank you and the church too and the school too

Bars on every corner neighborhoods look out for each other. Stores are far away. Family is close. Parks are kid friendly

The things like most is friendly neighborhood. Many of them clean.The neighborhood is quiet. Animals get alone.

There is lots of parks and Starbucks all around not enough fun stuff to do. There's a mall and two bowling's

I like the sidewalk so I can walk my dog. I like the route I take my dog because there are sidewalks.
