Crime & Safety
I like Benton because it is a nice quiet town. The people are very friendly. There is hardly ever any major crime. Benton offers convenient places such as gas stations, stores, and places to eat. There are a good source of jobs for teenagers. The Benton Geisinger is very convenient too. The Benton schools offers very good education for students. Benton is a very safe little town. The only thing I'd like to see change is bring the pharmacy back. The pharmacy was a really nice place.It was very helpful for the people who lived in Benton and who went to Benton Geisinger because they wouldn't have to go far to get their prescriptions. Benton offers a lot for the small town it is.
It is a small rural town. Close to larger towns but still far enough away. People are very friendly and helpful. Lots of outdoor activities- hiking, fishing, boating, and biking to name a few. Local community center with classes for everyone.
