    American Falls Reviews

    8 reviews
    All Categories
    There are two kinds of people who live in American Falls, mainly. White LDS, and Hispanic Catholics. There sees to be less tension here than most places, people get along and are friendly. This is a mostly Republican town however, and follows a majority of conservative beliefs.
    Review American Falls
    While the nature surrounding the area offers activities, it is underutilized and leads to boredom. The people here are mostly friendly, however there is a drug problem in little towns like this.
    There are gyms and parks and thing of that nature in the area, but they are not utilized or are in extreme disrepair. For example, American Falls has a tennis court in the center of town, but due to disrepair is not a viable option for those wishing to participate in an outdoor activity.
