What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Oak Ridge

this neighborhood has very well maintained housing; people are proud of keeping their domiciles well kept. There are many local businessess within walking disatance.

I like that we live close to grocery stores, post office and car repair shops. We live a short distance in multiple directions of restaurants and churches. I like the convenience of that

I like going everywhere. The mall is wonderful and awesome. I don't have any friends out here. Oak ridge is a very strange kind of place where strange things always tends to happen

It's got a unique history dating back to World War 2. You have a nice mix of newer and older buildings. While you need a car to survive here, you don't have to drive far to do what you need.

My family and I have lived in this neighborhood since it was being built in the 1940s. I am here to stay.

it's in the middle of mostly everything and there are schools very close by along with restaurants and my friends live just down the street
