Knightsen Reviews

1 review
I really love my town, it is getting bigger with more families coming in and starting their lives here, just as my family did for my siblings and I. There is a great pride of people who say they live in the area. It is close to some major cities just an hour away, but far enough away where we don't get many tourists and not a lot of other cities know where we are at. My town has some great family things to do, there are many Mom and Pop shops that bring people together. Almost everyone is friendly and willing to help out if needed. I would definitely live here again because of the great variety of living options from developments, apartments, farms, and even little plots of land. There is no income barrier in the town, it welcomes any income bracket.
