Pulaski County Reviews

2 reviews
Pulaski County has been my home for the past 18 years. It is a very safe and family friendly community. We have grown drastically within the past five years adding many restaurants and shopping destinations. Our schools are highly academically and athletically driven. This is a great town to raise children and grow old in.
