Como Reviews

There's no place like home, but I do consider seeing myself moving elsewhere just to explore and get out in the real world. Como is a very small town, but Como has people who has big hearts and wouldn't mind giving a helping hand. The weather in general can be good most of the time, and we barely get real bad weather. If we do get bad weather, it would be out of the blue. The people and the town together I think is reasonable and the surrounding areas are fair. I definitely can see myself living in Como, not all my life, but I can see myself going out in the world and coming back to Como just for the rest, peace and quiet. So I would basically still live in Como, and I would just get me a big house build with little land I can find and just come to stay but travel at the same time. I would say that city life is definitely more active and fun to be living in somewhere like in New York, but any place or city in the country, does not have nothing on Como. In the near future, I see Como still looking like that small town with fewer jobs, but with friendly people.

Como is a small town within Mississippi ; it is a low below average community. There are few places that you can go to socialize with people your age or like you.
The town of Como is really small so chances of anything happening would be unexpecting. We barely have polices so other polices would have to come and help from other locations, but only when there is a major problem. Every night, one police does search the town and parts of the neighborhood. My concern would be not having enough polices to help when the times actually comes to help. Other than that, Como is a small town that rarely nothing happens there.
