    Beacon Falls Reviews

    I love living in a small town and being part of a tight-knit community with childhood friends and families that I have shared memories with over the past 18 years of my life. I wouldn't trade living in Beacon Falls for the world. If I could do it all over, I'd pick the same house and the same neighborhood friends I grew up with. I have enjoyed living in a small town and hope that in my future I could start my own family in Beacon Falls, and if not, it a town very similar.
    The nature scene in Connecticut is nothing above average but its simplicity and natural beauty give it a rate of 3 out of 5. The beaches are not overcrowded and the sand, although not picture-pierfectly white, and the water, although not crystal blue, are not polluted. There are many parks and forrests in CT. Some outdoor activities include hiking, mountain bike riding, amusement parks, or boating.
    The police in this small town are very responsive to the little crime we have. Most of our crime consists of running red lights and coasting through a stop sign. Beacon Falls has their crime completely under control and the chances of crime are extremely low.
