East Palestine really does have a small town feel. Everyone knows everyone here. It would be nice if there was more to do, especially for kids and young adults. If you want to do anything, they have to drive about 20-25 min. There are not a lot of job opportunities here but because of that, you get the country home town feel.

Nothing really to do. Not much to eat, no entertainment. The activities the town offers are nice like the street fair. Quiet town, nothing happening.
Nice little town. Currently trying to control the drug epidemic that is getting so bad this part in ohio.
A few people moved to town and really helped fix it up and open some new businesses. The town has quite a few community town events. Summer usually gas something fun going on every weekend. Less than a half hour drive from 4 major cities.
