Blue Ridge Summit Reviews

2 reviews
The people in town aren't the greatest but once you get out of town to see the area it is a nice quiet small town that has stuff to do as long as you know what there is to do.
Review Blue Ridge Summit
The town is growing so there has been more crime but the police force isn't bad so they seem to have a good control over things.
