What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About South Salem Salem

My neighborhood is unique in that we have community it's greenhouses and gardens, chickens, and a community center that we can holiday family events or gatherings to play games, cook, craft, or just about anything.

Downtown still has a lot of lovely old buildings. The downtown still caters mostly to mom and pop shops, which is rare nowadays. It gives it a unique feel.

I'm close to schools which is nice. There is a bar within walking distance and a Chinese restaurant.

It's a rural so while there's a lot of traffic, it is not city traffic. Which is fantastic one of the things I like best about living out here on the outskirts of the city.

There is a secret park uphill that makes my neighborhood cool. It is also unique in that it's by a cemetery that has engaging hiking paths and woods to enjoy.
