Herrin is an easy place to find rental properties. Not only are there typically plenty of vacancies but the process itself is quick and easy. Most places don't even need an application. You just lay out first and last months' rent along with a security deposit. Pet deposits are rare but there are a few places and individuals that will ask for them. You should be aware that while you will find plenty one-bedroom apartments and studio apartments for rent in Herrin, very few come with all bills paid.
There really aren't any specific neighborhoods here. Most areas are known by their age more than anything else. The original part of Herrin is the downtown area. Then came Freeman Spur that was predominantly coal mines and rural farmland. The newest subdivision is Stotlar.
Downtown: This area has quite a few older homes and a few apartment complexes. What makes this area really stand out is the variety of trendy boutiques and restaurants. From the Merle Normans on the corner of Cherry Street to the Burger Nook on South Park Avenue, you will find that this thriving part of town has everything you need.
Freeman Spur: This reclaimed coal area is mostly owner occupied homes with a few apartment buildings. This is the most rural area of the town and you can expect to find large yards and medium sized homes. This is a great area of town to move to if you enjoy relaxing; most neighbors are quite a distance apart!
Stotlar: This is a newer housing area, all things considered, and you will find modest sized homes and apartment buildings here. This is the best place to look for three and four-bedroom homes and apartments with more than two bedrooms.
Park Drive and Herrin Memorial Park are you two options of outdoor green space in town. After a day at Park Drive, head over to El Jalisco to fill up. For other restaurant options, check out Mary's Restaurant, Girolamo Pizzeria, Hardee's or The Frenchman's Widow. For some nighttime fun, head over to J&J Time Out Sports Bar and if you want to put on your dancing shoes, drive out to nearby Sugar Rae's Club.
