There is not very much to do here, but I do see it growing. I like that there is an antique store and plenty of police officers to help regulate safety. I wish there were several more restaurants, a movie theater, and more activities throughout the city. There is not enough to do, but I have had a decent experience living here.

I have lived in Fulton all of my life before going to college and it is a nice place to call home. It is a quiet, small town where everybody knows everybody. Although the town is lacking in areas such as a more variety of eating establishments, and places for teenagers to go such as movies, skating rink, recreational halls, etc, the town is well put together. With a community college in the town, which has students from at least five different counties within the Northern part of the state, it would be an asset to have something for college students to do to keep them within the town on weekends.

I feel not only is it small and quiet, it is safe and friendly as well. The local police is always present throughout the day and night making sure everyone and everything is safe. I have noticed that the people in Fulton are strong supporters of the schools.
Fulton is an average place to live. There's not much to do here for the kids or teens. It's a very small town, quiet, people don't bother you here.
