Barre Town Reviews

There are many good stores and restaurants in my area, but from my experience, there are equally as many where I've had consistently bad service. That's the reason for my "okay" rating.
Review Barre Town
Alot of drugs pass through Vermont, and it shows in Barre. I wouldn't choose to live in Barre if given the chance. Anywhere else in the state is better, except for Rutland.
My mom was having a heartattack and it took forever for the ambulance to get here, and they drove right past our house the first time. I was angry.
