Overall the town of Silver City, New Mexico is pretty alright to me. There really isn't a lot to do here, but life is all about what you make it, and me and my friends made it a great experience. But we're definetely excited to go to college in Tucson to start a new chapter in our lives!

The crime rate is not very high, there is little crime every once in awhile, and overall the town seems to be a pretty safe place, although the police may be hard to deal with sometimes.
I love this area it is quiet and very, country like. I see this area getting bigger and bigger in the future.
