Berkeley County Reviews
I am frequently in this county but try to avoid it. Crime here is questionable, police and teachers are overworked and underpaid, and schools care about sports more than education. Thus, they don't attract good police or teachers. Strip clubs and used car lots are everywhere. People are dirty in some places. Nicest areas are west of 81 or near Jefferson County. If you have the money, move to Jefferson County. Jefferson is safer, cleaner and is more like Virginia than West Virginia.
More for the younger kids and the teens as far as activities. Encourage volunteering. County has a lot of needs that volunteers could help with. Fixing things up, picking up trash, etc.
Berkeley County is actually bigger than people think. It lets you see different areas. You're never oblivious to your surroundings because if something happens, everyone knows.
