What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lees Mill Newport News

The neighborhood is very clean, no trash on the sidewalks. No people hanging out on the street corner selling drugs. The downtown has a lot of American history and museums.

It is a 55 and older neighborhood. There is all kinds of fast food restaurants. I don't go places with friends and family.

Within walking distance to Food Lion which came in handy when we had a very bad snow storm one year. And there is a 711 down the street.

I live near a busy road, so I can walk to the gas station across the street. It's also easy to access public transportation in this neighborhood. For any shops or hang-out places, I have to leave the neighborhood.

I like to take walks and go to the pool with my friends and family. I can walk to many different restaurant.
