Berlin Reviews

6 reviews
All Categories
Berlin was voted America's Coolest Small Town in 2014. Downtown Berlin is a cute little town with fun shops, antiques, and art galleries. The whole town does seem to go to sleep pretty early, but during the day there is plenty to do- beaches, nature trails, shopping. The area is still very rural, so it makes for very pretty landscapes and sunsets. The only downfall for me, is that there aren't a lot of career opportunities. Most of the jobs here are seasonal. It would be nice if there were more year-round opportunities instead of having to leave to start a career elsewhere.
Review Berlin
Berlin is a great somewhat small town. It is very safe to be and a great place for kids. It also has some very great school. Many great ways and places to have fun! A family town
everything is okay not the best
