Kent County Reviews
Lived and worked here for 3 years. Pros: Overall it is a safe place with lots of access to water and beautiful sunsets. Cons: Very limited employment opportunities, limited housing opportunities, no amenities, very few restaurants, limited shopping, and a heroin problem. Schools are closing, the hospital has closed with a small emergency center in it's place, and the movie theater just closed along with a number of restaurants. If you weren't born and raised here, your opportunities are very limited. While Washington College brings in some liberal ideas, the county is heavily conservative.
It is now more of a place to settle down for retirement, the local government doesnt want change. Instead of bringing in new things that would make people want to stay they keep everything the same.
Kent County is a gorgeous rural county with beautiful sunsets. The rivers and Chesapeake Bay make summers on the water a prime location with tourists coming in to see all of its beauty. Winters bring moderate snow fall. The Public School system has provided me with an education that allowed me to get accepted into top schools with top programs.
