What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Kent

There are many stores and restaurants in a short driving distance. I have some nice and friendly neighbors

People take pride in the community. People are friendly. There are a good variety of places for families to go.

I used to hang out at the local pub, the pool hall, and go for walks with my family.Take the kids to the park

There's a McDonald's close by, a few other places to eat, a small grocery store and fairly close to the bus line

LOTS of friendly people. all kinds of stores and fast food places nearby. A great friendly bar close by.

I like how our neighborhood is very friendly. People wave to each other and talk with each other. I like going to parks with my family and friends. Where the stores are lined up is very nice and easy to find.
