What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Champaign

It's scenic and nice to walk through. We're close to several nice parks, and for the most part, yards and sidewalks are well-maintained.

What I like most about my neighborhood is the location,as it is near downtown via vehicle. I Also I like the pet friendlness of it.

Nowhere I stay at home and stay to myself I have no intersection with my unruly neighbors because I'm afraid of getting shot if I say the wrong thing to them

There is a nice park next to a school which is great to walk to. Within driving distance are several restaurants, a Walgreens, coffee shop, etc. We like to hang out with family at the local pizza place there & play pool.

The people looking out for each other and we have the best grocery store in the neighborhood nl much good

I like that all my neighbors and I trust one another. I also like how there are nearby ponds and parks to enjoy some outdoor activities. I also like that the sidewalks are well maintained and extremely large as well as dog friendly.
