Leyden Reviews

The area is very quiet and peaceful, away from traffic and noise. All of Leyden is covered in Woods, providing entertainment for birdwatchers and hunters alike. There are very few public services, but no matter where in Leyden you live, you're relatively near to many other large towns.

Leyden is not a very well known town, it's small and quite and has plenty of views to see! Rolling mountains and beautiful farm fields are what keep me in town. It still has that horse and buggy feel and everyone is there to help. The only thing that I would add to town is atleast one gas station and convenient store !
