Adrian is small, and there is not much to do besides seeing businesses downtown or going to the theater. There is a section of town that is very run down, and it makes the whole scene look depressing. The three college campuses in town are nice, and it's also nice to walk in the nice neighborhoods.
It's not a bad place to live. There are a ton of schooling options within twenty miles, and the price of gas is usually fairly low. Madison High School in particular seems to truly prepare their students for college and get them ready for life in the real world. Besides feeling slightly unsafe in certain neighborhoods, Adrian is a pretty nice place.
