Blytheville Reviews

All Categories
Blytheville is a fairly small town. Blytheville is also known for being a town with lots of crime. I think the reason so much crime is committed is because their is nothing her for our youth to do. So many students who have graduated, instead of taking advantage of the free tuition at the local community college they find there self going off to college in Little Rock, AR or Conway, AR because they want to find life.
Review Blytheville
Blytheville is a very small town. It has a lot of abandoned buildings and violence. Many roads are damaged and yards left horrific. Though through all of this residents here still have a lot of faith. Living in these conditions is tough and unhealthy. However, with the many churches around it shouldn't be long until change occurs.
Blytheville isn't the worst place to live, but it is up there. There's not a lot of entertainment to find around here for kids and teens and the amount of available jobs is severely lacking. There is sort of a community here but it's not one that I know much about.
