Bluffton is one of those towns that is good for a family. There are many opportunities for kids to have fun and gain an excellent education. If the person is religious than this is the town for you, because there are many churches around the town. Another good thing is there are many job opportunities for teenagers and adults. The school environment offers many reasons to get a head start for the real world. Bluffton is a town where you don't have to worry about gangs or dangerous individuals.
Bluffton is a pretty boring town considering it is surrounded by farm land. Since there is not a whole lot to do. Quite a few abandoned buildings that could be used for some type of entertainment or to liven up this town. Kids in high school are making babies like it's their job all because this town is boring. The high school actually put a nursery in the school. When kids aren't making babies there are other people that think its fun to make Meth and blow up their houses. I would really like to see a lot change in this town because it has a lot of potential. Not only for this town but the people in it.
