Review Bennington
I moved to Bennington in eighth-grade and I feel in love with it. There is such a good atmosphere here and people are so friendly.I love that you still get that small town feel while only being 15 minutes away from everything you need. Even though I am going to Missouri for college I could see myself moving back and starting a family in Bennington.
I like that Bennington is up and producing new buildings and housing. I wish there were more places nearby to eat and go out around here.
