The town of Bamberg is small but you will never miss a single beat. Everyone is very neighborly and friendly. There is not a lot to do but it is not far from other places who has more activities. There is hardly any crime. For a little town we are extremely supportive of sports, clubs, community and school projects. One thing that I can say that I would change about this wonderful town is the amount of fun activities it lacks.
Review Bamberg
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.
