I worked, but commuted often from the Los Angeles area, for 8 years. I was attracted to a necessary job offer, and the incentive of a low cost of living with the gratitude of California wages. It's hot, boring, and infected with agricultural run off.
Review Blythe
I feel very safe where I am located because I mainly live around a lot of my family members. Besides that I know everyone down my street and I am very well known throughout my community. Every community has their crimes, but the police here will respond when they are needed and keep this community under control.
Living in Blythe is a very easy lifestyle. Everyone knows everyone and you'll feel very safe. The river is the main attraction during the summer and brings newcomers and business to our small town. I would venture out of Blythe because it is very constant and doesn't change and I am very young and need to experience new things. I feel that when I am older I would love to come back to Blythe and defiantly give back to my community.
