Jackson County Reviews

1 review
I've lived in Jackson County for my entire life, and it's been amazing. There are admittedly some bad drivers, pot-heads, and unfortunate homeless people, but that's only a fraction of what the county has to offer. There is very little traffic, so commuting isn't a hassle. The weather is amazing and if you stay for a year, you'll see that we experience all four seasons wholeheartedly. When paired with the rolling hills, plentiful pastures, mountain ranges, and inviting skies, the weather really tops off Jackson County's overall charm. Although there are obviously issues, no county is going to be perfect. However, with it's low crime rates, Jackson County is a great choice for families. It's a pleasure living here!
