What Renters Like and Dislike About South Columbus Columbus

Some architecture is really beautiful, access to a lot nearby parks, the families that live by who have been living nearby for generations.

1 thing is it is very safe. Another thing is that it's quiet. And another is it feels like a community.

There is a grocery store and pharmacy near by . And there a convenient stores close too and there is public transportationclose to get to the grocery sore. Thats about it , i really dont like this neighborhoodto much. Im planningon moving soon.

I like visiting nice attractions and restaurants with good food. I also like walking on the beach and hiking in the forest

I like being close to the bus line. I like my little 4 unit apartments I live in they are clean, and litter free, bc I clean it up. I like the nearby school bc I take grandbaby to the playground.

First off we are real close to Three Creeks State Park with fishing hiking biking and lots more. Close to many fast Food restaurants and bicycle friendly
