Great Bend Reviews
The Carthage area community is small enough to be a close knit community, but large enough that you are not aware of everyone's business. The immediate area does not have a majority of opportunities of things to do, however if you make the drive you can visit the Catskill mountains, go to a wine tasting in the Finger Lakes region, and you are also 30 miles from Canada. The surrounding area also has hundreds of places to camp and get in touch with nature.
There was not a large number of major crimes in town. However the surrounding areas, especially Rochester and Watertown, are hotbeds for drug busts, particularly heroin. At a local forum though, the police administration discussed plans to up the security and make the area safer for the common citizen.
