What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Cranston

Family friendly neighborhood. Lots of kids and dogs. Close to local restaurants and stores. I like to go to local restaurants and parks

I love how we are close by to grocery stores, hospitals, and banks. These places are important because I prefer easy access instead of driving a far distance. There are pharmacies close by as well which is a plus!

I like the restaurants nearby. Rolfe square is very nice. It also has a great supermarket. The little local shops are like a tiny town in and of itself.

My side is quieter I guess, I live close to the park so that makes it fun during the Summer months. There are a lot of local businesses in my area i.e. restaurants.

I love away from the city. I can drive to get what i need. I don't have to deal with people to much.

My favorite thing about my neighborhood is the people. Everyone I've met who lives around me is pretty friendly and takes care of their home. It's clean and full of trees and greenery. There's a local farm across the street that sells fresh fruit, vegetables, etc which is very convenient for families who need to get somewhere quicker than a grocery store.
