Citronelle Reviews

3 reviews
I have lived in Citronelle all of my life and while I do feel that there is a sense of community here the small town life can also be stifling. Everybody knows everybody which can be a good thing but can also be very negative. People here also dont care for their views to be challenged or disagreed with.

I am from Citronelle, AL and it is a small town nothing big. It is like a town I prefer to live in than a big city. The backwoods are great and a peaceful relaxing place to live. There are things that need improvement but what town/city does not need that. Overall it is great.
Citronelle is a small town north of Mobile Alabama that comes and works together in times of need. Everyone knows each other and stands by each other through the good times and the bad.
