What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Janesville

I like that it is easy to get to the highway and access to grocery stores and restaurants. I take advantage of the nearby parks and bike trails

it is safe and clean, it is nice to walk around my area. People are nice and polite, it is easy to make friends

We know most everyone on the street. It's very quiet. No barking dogs. It's walking distance to schools, parks, and at least 2 restaurants. We also have a bike and walking trail nearby.

There are a lot of parks that are around my neighborhood. Theres a lot of fast food and stores that are walking distance.
