What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Cambridge

It is area that is decent for a young crowd and seniors as well. There is a small mall in walking distance and a few restaurants nearby but not too many.

Even though this neighborhood is in a city, there is a windmill, a branch library, parks, bunnies, options for various cuisines, beverages, ethnic groceries, social dancing and late night food and beverage options.

Every day we would walk in the park near where we lived and breathe the fresh air on the green and cobblestone paths

We're in the best spot for everything - there are parks, the waterfront, close to public transit, close to the airport, fantastic restaurants, and easy access to grocery stores, medical and dental, and downtown.

I just got to y'all go to ya boy ya ya girl ya ya know y'all love ya boy ya ya girl ya ya know ya boy lol lol ya ya know y'all love y'all too and I'll talk ya boy ya ya girl ya ya know ya boy lol lol ima was

I like the walkability of my neighborhood best. My favorite local businesses include the Alive and Kicking lobster shack, the Flour bakery and the Toscanini ice cream shop. For dinner, the India Pavilion and Little Donkey can't be beat!
