What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About West Chester

Everything is within a short drive. That includes shopping, parks, highways, restaurants. Plus town is a 5 minute drive and we have walking paths near by.

I like going to marsh Creek which is a park with the lake and lots of hiking trails. We are so like going to a gas station that's nearby because it has a pretty cool playground by five.

My neighbors are friendly and polite, the location is very convenient for families and older adults, shopping options available are numerous

We have large open flat lots. Everyone is nice. You have privacy. We are located near a city and good transportation.

I like the bars and restaurants and festivals that are nearby. Easily can walk to the grocery store and restaurants.
