What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Skokie

I like the neighbors some of the neighbors and that it is quiet out here and I also like how it's walking distance to almost everything that you need

New neighborhood just developing. Not that far to get to restaurants and shopping. Gyms and parks are easy to get to from my location.

I like that I'm close to a hospital, mall, grocery store, and movie theater. I have a lot I can walk to, but it's mostly made for those who drive.

just a quit place, we usually go shopping in martketplace, no famous and favorite restaurants or bars

I love the small businesses nearby, meant for anyone. We have good greenery and parks nearby and bike routes and the trees!

I appreciate the quietness of the area. It's pretty calming, so I get to relax often. There are good restaurants nearby, so food is never scarce.
