I personally believe that this area is too small with nothing to do. In order to go out to eat or go shopping, you have to drive at least 20 minutes to get to a decent store. I would not live here all over again because nothing ever happens in this small town.
Review Bennington
In this area, everybody knows everybody but no one ever really talks to each other.
Crime isn't big in Attica since there isn't much you can steal from or anything like that. The safety is good.
