Lincoln County Reviews
I love where I live! I never want to leave, and I see myself here in the future. I see me spending my whole life here just as my parents did. I couldn't think of a now beautiful or better place to live!
People love this area and never want to leave. Why would you move away from the country? It's beautiful. Hearing the birds chirp and crickets sing is the most beautifulest thing I've ever heard!
It is an alright area, people are friendly and criminal activity is rare, but there is pretty much nothing to do. Many local businesses closed down and there is no activities for children accept just hiking, which will only entertain children for so long. To get anywhere like a simple walmart or dollar store is like a small road trip taking 30 minutes or more, which is a frustration for many people when there are no general stores in the area and makes those trips rare. I would not live here again I plan to move into a city, and I don't see a good future for the area unless more career opportunities come into the area along with more recreational buildings and stores.
