When I first moved here it wasn't. I went through a couple of periods in my life where I hated being here, but I accepted the fact that everything can't be controlled.
Review Licking County
I would never live here again, the people aren't very friendly unless your entire family is from around the area. There is nothing to do around here. I see this area as mostly being farm lands forever because of the amount of fields now. It'snot very exciting now. People don't interact as much because everything is so far apart.
There is a wide variety of shopping and restaurants available. Employment is average.
