Blue Mounds Reviews

3 reviews
There are wonderful friendly neighborhoods for kids to grow up in, there are many parks (town, county and state) nearby and there is a cave nearby to check out! Overall, it's a wonderful little town to check out.
Review Blue Mounds
Very safe area. Occasional instances of vandalism and theft by teenagers, but nothing major.
Good place to live for families. Lots of outdoor activities and a close drive to Madison for entertainment.
