Carey Reviews

1 review
Carey is a very small town where it feels like everyone is related. We do live in the middle of nowhere which makes it nice that we don't have to deal with city life and the traffic. For the most part, it is pretty quiet. The people are nice for the most part. The problem is there isn't much to do there are no parts or anything.
