Carlton Reviews

1 review
It is a lovely town to grow up in, but there is a lack of opportunities here. We have a tight-knit community here, but there are not many businesses around - there is no fast food, the nearest supermarket is 10 minutes away, and the nearest four-year college is forty-five minutes away.
