What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lakeland

i love some restaurants fish chip that my favorite food taste delicious loved food i don't have no unique neighborheed never will be

nothing is unique . we live on a farm among industry so we really don't have a great place, we don't go too many places as we are retired and the traffic is dicey

We have Fred's restaurant which is very popular. Stores are close enough to get to if. You didn't have a car.

The rent is pretty cheap. There are store's in walking distance. My neighborhood is quiet and pretty friendly

I think the fact that so many people have lived in the neighborhood for so long is unique. We are close to a Starbucks which is my favorite. My friends and I spend time at the pool hall and the arcade next door to it.

Love living in historic neighborhood with old bungalows. Streets are not super busy. There are restaurants and coffee shops close by.
