    Atkinson County Reviews

    I’ve lived here my whole life, and I like my whole town, but I wish there were more things to do here. Like more places to shop, for entertainment, or places to go out to eat. Usually when someone of my age (17) wants to do something we have to go to neighboring counties. I live in Pearson which is a city in Atkinson. It’s very small and there’s not much to do. The people are pretty friendly and down to earth. Overall it’s a nice place, just a little boring at times.

    How the community comes together when there's a tornado warning or a fundraiser for High School students playing a sport or doing a project. Also, having local festivals that keep the community coming out and enjoying fun time with all there family. Its a sense of community.
