Berlin is a really small, quaint, and friendly family town. Most people grow up here, move away, and then come back and settle down with a family. However, for a twenty-something, there are no opportunities for a social life. There is also a lack of diversity which is tough individuals who associate with LGBTQ. Both of which are the main reasons for my 2 star rating.
Review Berlin
I live in a small town, so there are many family owned bars, and restaurants. Its a everybody knows everybody type of place. The people are great, but the city itself is getting run down, and places need to start renovating their stores.
Besides Wal-mart in town, there are not many other business that hire. If you are hired you stay there until you retire because there are not many job opportunities unless you want to drive out of town.
