I moved here two years ago and Adams is a small town with little to do. The school is good, but there isn't much town activity for your life.

Adams is a great town to have a family in. Its super safe and the schools nearby are amazing. Its a small town, with a surrounding countryside that has many opportunities for snowmobiling, fourwheeling, and other outdoor activities. It is close to Syracuse too if you feel the urge to go into a city.
I like the small town they have that events, but need more shopping and food places. Safe town, but not much to do.
