Growing up I didn't spend as much time in Fredonia. We lived about 20 miles away, so we traveled to Fredonia but only on occasion. I used to enjoy coming to the point and the local parks! Now, I stay here quite often and even am employed in Fredonia! The people in the area are so friendly, and its nice to see an increase in businesses! Fredonia has a lot to offer. I'm certainly glad I decided to visit!
Fredonia is truly the perfect small-town feel. You will walk down the street or walk into Walmart and instantly recognize a dozen people. The atmosphere is home-like and it's a very safe environment. It is the perfect place to raise a family and I too will probably return to raise my family here. It is everybody knows everybody places right on Lake Erie and, if you do want a bigger city feeling, Buffalo is only 40 minutes away. You are also right by Niagara Falls and, as a football fan myself, the Buffalo Bills play an hour away. I love Fredonia, New York
