Heidelberg Reviews

3 reviews
There are good jobs here for people who are getting degrees in teaching, lawyers, engineers, etc. but i would like to see more opportunities for the people who are in the art field. The only way someone with a B.A. to make a living here is if they were a teacher or opened up their own studio. If someone with a B.A. is looking for other jobs they would most likely have to relocate.

I would like to see more bike lanes but most of the people here own a vehicle. Parking is great and it's free which helps a lot. Public transportation includes local buses and a few taxis but they are both very good at helping people get to where they need to be.
Most of the restaurants around my area serve Mexican food but my favorite place to eat would have to be the taquerias that specialize in Bistec or Fajita tacos.
