Berlin Reviews

34 reviews
All Categories
I loved my small hometown growing up. I met some of my closest friends here, whom helped me grow into the person I am today. Not to mention, having family close by (only approximately 10 minutes away), allowed for close relationships between myself and grandparents, aunts and uncles. I would not change my life in Berlin for anything.
Review Berlin
Berlin is a small and quiet town. They have a variety of stores and tattoo shops. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming and there are a few small businesses which I like and support. The houses are expensive but the neighborhoods are nice. Education is average. I would like to see the taxes go down and have more than one grocery store to go to, I would also like to see an affordable gym in the area.
Interesting history and historic district. School system seems middle of the road. Kids range from down-to-earth through arrogant and clique-y. Downtown area is basically a strip that needs revitalization and economic development.
