Arab Reviews

15 reviews
All Categories
No jobs, this town is just about for people over the age of 45+ and for people who are retired. The only good jobs is found in other cities nearby and you have to drive 45+ minutes to get there. Family owned businesses never survive and shut down along with anything fun like skating rinks or theatres. Favoritism from cops is high in this area if they don't know you or somebody in your family good luck in the courts.
Review Arab
The small town atmosphere is quaint and relaxing, but the secluded nature of the town itself closes off he residents from the rest of the outside world. Unfortunately, people seem ignorant of, or simply refuse to acknowledge, views that do not correspond exactly with their own. That said, this does not apply to everyone.
Arab is a friendly town where everyone knows everyone. You will know someone everywhere you go. People are very active in the community and work hard to keep it safe for future generations. The only thing I would love to see changed would be added job opportunities.
