What Renters Like and Dislike About Ruston

It's in walking distance to everything if you don't have a way to get there or when your is giving you trouble

My favorite things about my neighborhood are it's upscale feel, the modern look of my home, the fact that they have garages, and the size of the homes.

We all raise some type of livestock. We enjoy the nearest convenient store food. We enjoy going to the movie theater.

very short drive to downtown, but it doesn't seem like it would be. parks and trails very near and easy access to interstate

Scenic very close to Walgreens Kentucky fried chicken. Close to Neighborhood WalMartclose dyioowhn

I like that our neighborhood is a place where kids can safely play outside, even in the streets. Also, I enjoy that there is plenty of space between houses to be comfortable while also being close enough to be able to interact with the neighbors.
