What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Abilene

Close to interstate for travel across town. Hospital is nearby. Close to bus stops.Grocery stores nearby, within walking distance. Feel fairly safe walking in neighborhood.

I like the fact that there's a a grocery story only a couple blocks away, easily walkable in good weather. I like that there is a park nearby even if I'd probably take a car there because of the busy road.

What makes it most unique is the age of the neighborhood. Older homes with character not cookie cutter. University is close by.

There are a church on every block. Food, bar, two grocery stores within walking distance. It is nice to have a police station so close as well.
