Poor leadership at the city level in the past. Some city officials and policies not business friendly. Lack of hospitality from certain local residents, many of whom engage in rigorously enforced group think.

Beatrice is a great town! I was born and raised here. I have known most of my friends since pre school. It is the kind of town where no matter where you go, you find someone you know or someone who knows you.
I wish Beatrice had a few more things for teenagers to do. We don't really have much. We usually have to drive an hour to find really fun things to do.
But as a whole I would say Beatrice is great and am very glad to be from here.
Beatrice is not a horrible place to live and raise a family, there are a few individuals that makes this town have a bad name just as most towns have. We have a racetrack here that races weekly which is a large attraction for a town of the size we also have a few other attractions for kids and young teens to keep busy and stay out of trouble. There are many well paying jobs in the area or a short commute away which makes it nice since it is much cheaper to live here than other larger cities around us. I would like them to clean up the town and get rid of some of the petty crime around here and quit slapping repeat offenders on the hand and actually give them a punishment so maybe they will learn and not continue to do the same acts. Overall not a horrible place to live.
