    Boone Township Reviews

    2 reviews
    The population is too sparse for crime to ever occur from locals. Most locals in this area do own firearms for protection in case anything ever occurred as it may take up to 10 minutes for police to be able to reach the destination. While driving into nearby towns, police are always very visible.
    Review Boone Township
    It is the perfect location to call home. Travelling to other cities for work is typical but it is not a burden. Being able to leave the city behind along with its noise, traffic, and frustrating scenarios in order to come home where it is quiet and steady makes for the best night's sleep.
