    Berlin Township Reviews

    This is the Bible Belt, so It honestly depends on your personal beliefs. The culture here can be warm and welcoming as long as your opinion aligns with their beliefs. Basically, if you're anything other than conservative, christian, and heterosexual, you risk being alienated or looked down upon. There are some very positive aspects about living here, however. Crime feels nearly non-existent, and there is a unique culture here. Overall, my experience here has been good and bad. I would probably not want to live here again, though.
    Review Berlin Township
    The community is extremely conservative and religious. People here are very kind and welcoming, but can also be pretty narrow-minded. Science and environmentalism is, generally, looked at as negative or deceiving.
    As stated before, the people here are extremely kind. However, there is not much diversity here. It is mostly white, conservative, christian fundamentalists.
