Buffalo Reviews

I've been in Buffalo my whole life. I was born here and went to school here. I attended St. Francis Xavier Catholic school from preschool to eighth grade, after which I continued my education at Buffalo Highschool. I worked at the Menards in Buffalo and a landscaping job in the summer. Buffalo, overall, is full of opportunities. It has many small and locally owned shops and businesses. It is a very peaceful town that I feel very safe in. I will most likely move back here after college. It is a town where i would feel comfortable raiseing a family in.
While it may seem to be in the middle of a sea of cornfields, Buffalo is like a little oasis, with its beautiful lakes and charming downtown. It also provides many nice neighborhoods, lots of food options, varied entertainment options, and stores providing for all the basic needs. It is also home to a reputable school district and a thriving senior culture. Its claims to fame are its assortment of antique shops, car dealerships, and cultural vibe.
I was born and raised in Buffalo, and moved back after living in St. Cloud for a few years. I have always loved Buffalo. It is a relatively larger town, but it feels very close knit. There are a number of wonderful small businesses filled with friendly employees. There are lots of fun things to do around town, and many great places to eat. The school district is great, and they hire teachers who very clearly care about the education of their students.
