    Amboy Reviews

    2 reviews
    I love the over all atmosphere of Amboy and would definitely chose to live here again. I love the people. The only thing I might want to change is that there isn't really much to do. The closest shopping mall, movie theatre, or bowling ally (for example) are about 40 minutes away.

    There is no prevalent crime activity in Amboy. Nothing big has happened in the area recently, mostly kids being kids and a drug bust. Violence is very low. The police and other emergency services are always there in an emergency.
