What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Urbana

It's easy to get to places around town, it's close to restaurants and the grocery store, it's a great combination of different families and people

We are not downtown but close to restaurants, medical facilities, etc. We can also get onto the freeway very quickly if needed.

I like the peace and quiet in my neighborhood the nice sunsets and bike riding down the road or walking the dog down the road

It has some fast foods around. Most people in my neighborhood mind their business. Which apparently to be good all things being considered.

I like that my place is a walking distance from downtown. I like that ot is not a food desert area. I like that restaurants and businesses are not far from where I live. My neighborhood is also close to a park where I can take my children to or take a walk.

I feel way more safer than people I have heard about in their neighborhoods. My fav business is this bar next to me.
