The houses here are all rented out by individuals. So maintenance isn't something that happens often. There are a few houses here that are.abandoned, but most houses have new residents the very next day. I pay 725 a month, water and power included. That's about average. My landlord has about 25 other properties all around the same price. He's not known for maintenance or yard work. Lawnmowers are always being stolen, so unless you have a garage you don't mow your grass
There are two gyms I town. The mega-chain zone, and your smaller chain, adrenaline fitness. I'm pretty sure there is a town fitness center but I've been living here over a year and still haven't seen it. We have a nice disc golf course that I play 4+ days a week. It's getting other people interested in the sport. But the older veneration is a bigger generation.
Rent is high because it's a college town. The general atmosphere is college kids in pajamas at your local Wal-Mart. If you like food, there is a restaurant on every street. As far as entertainment, food is it. If I could do it again I would not choose to live here. The city park is the greatest, but you can't walk your dog past nine because cops will run you out. Not a bad place to live when school is out.
