Cumberland is a beautiful community with historic places of interest, well maintained bike paths, and a quaint walk-able downtown shopping district. Unfortunately the industries this community use to rely on economically have closed and the area is in a decline; however, Cumberland is trying to encourage growth with it's #BeBold campaign. Cumberland is building an interesting art community and hosts a large number of local festivals and events.

Cumberland isn't a horrible place to be. There are a lot of beautiful historical attributes to this town and can be very lovely from the outside looking in. The problem with this town is when you live in it. With very little for the youth to do it had lead to most of them on drugs or in jail. The crime rate is steadily increasing and nobody feels safe in this town. It's a dead end town. There are no opportunities here and everyone seems to want to escape. The most popular thing about Cumberland is there is a bar on literally every corner.
This is area is beautiful. Unfortunately the area has many problems. These problems include crime and especially drugs. The outskirts are not as but as in town. The area is beautiful and for me, worth it.
