What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Independence

To through streets keep traffic very low. Grocery and Drug stores are with in a mile. We are old and very seldom go anywhere, we love our large back yard and watch birds and wild animals run around.

Mid-century modern houses. Giant trees. We have a neighborhood watch. People help each other. People take care of their house and yards.

Fort nutrition. Basically everyone goes to the fort football games. McDonald's is a big hang out for the kids.

It's real close to a lot of restaurants and stores. Also all the street names are accent Indian names.

Between busy roads with all levels of schools being 15 minutes away max, grocery stores and restraunts are 5-10minutes away, and everyone is mostly friendly.

I wouldn't change anything about my neighbors their quiet and where quiet when don't talk to just kind are business and that's the way it should stay.
