I stayed here a few weeks, almost a month. I was there to find work and I'm well educated and qualified. I also tried to find a worship place and tried to make it my home, but I left in disgust.

People here are mostly rich, so if you're rich, I guess you will be welcomed and you will like it. If you are not rich, as so many are not in this day and time, you will be miserable. I was sat down and told how low class I was (which I'm not) and how I just wasn't good enough for the town.

At first, they gave me some help since I'm out of work. But this quickly deteriorated into inequality and even hostility.

So watch out. The natives are hostile. I even had to go to the hospital with my blood pressure soaring because a landlady I was staying with, allowed a man to peek into my room while I was getting dressed! When I made a legitimate complaint, she came at me and it was so distressing it set off health problems and I had a hospital visit. I left disgusted.

Castle Rock is an amazing town where there are endless opportunities. The close-knit group of people living here are all welcoming and friendly. It is an amazing and safe place to live. If you are ever looking for an adventure, Castle Rock is never a dissapointment. In this town, you will find many activities to keep you busy throughout the year such as a beautiful outlet mall with many stores, endless hiking trails, fun places to eat, and a skating rink for the winter! Like any good town, we have our traditions. For example, we have a Star-Lighting event where the residents all come out to Down-Town Castle Rock during the Holiday Time to celebrate and light a giant star on the top of the giant boulder that our town is named after. Castle Rock is the place to be.
Castle Rock is an amazing place, with amazing people. You are able to make so many new friends and there are lots of things to do! I have lived here my whole life and have always loved it. It is growing very quickly but I am very hopeful and optimistic that it will keep its small-town feel that I know and love.
