    Bamberg Reviews

    Bamberg is a small town. There is only two stop lights in Bamberg. Everyone knows everyone, it is a really small town so news travels fast... Plenty of people are in this town are related to each other so everyone is like a huge family. There is not a lot to do except go to sports games and church. There is plenty of churches and many welcome plenty of people. It is pretty safe with the occasional accident.
    There are plenty of friendly people in the community, but there's plenty of unfriendly people as well. Many people are happy to participate in community events.
    The majority of the crime here is theft or drug related. Violent crimes, shootings etc. are very uncommon here. Overall there really isn't that much criminal activity in our town.
