Hamilton Reviews

Hamilton is a great community. People are friendly and helpful and there is a lot to do. Some of my favorite places are the book store and the movie theater, where there is always something gong on. The scenery is also beautiful. There are a lot of good restaurants. The only thing that bothers me about Hamilton is that some of the stores and restaurants hold odd hours, due to relying on the college for business, and nothing is open late.
