Beacon Falls Reviews

Beacon Falls is a small town that I often complain about because I am young and there is essentially nothing "fun" to do without having to travel a few miles out to the nearby towns. However, I do have to give my hometown some credit because it really was a good place to grow up. It's a safe town, I could walk all over the place and not feel in danger in any way (other than walking around a curve and not knowing if a car was going to come...). The school system, Region 16, is actually pretty good. I really liked the majority of teachers I had and knew. The sports are built up because what else is there to do in a small town, so I did participate in rec and travel sports which were fun and exciting and gave me something to look forward to. I made a lot of friends through sports and made the summers really fun. Beacon Falls is a pretty good place to live and have a home, all in all.
Review Beacon Falls
Beacon Falls is my hometown and I love the small town mentality here. The people are always friendly and even though it's not a huge town, there are plenty of things to do here. From walking on the path around Toby's Pond, playing in the fields at the rec, or even stopping for a delicious dinner at New Harvest, there is so much to enjoy.
Safe and quiet area. Not much to do around the area though. Many young people moving out, making the school small where everyone knows everyone. If you are looking for quiet neighborhood, this is the place.
