Lookingglass Reviews

1 review
I don't dislike Lookingglass really but there is nothing to do here except bike to the store, the elementary school, and the church, then drive everywhere else. It's laid back and peaceful but not the greatest. And don't ride your bike on the main roads without extreme caution. People have died due to texting drivers. The quarry can be loud. Often political views are in your face, and sometimes the neighbors aren't all that friendly. However people do come together for fire safety and in the recent snow storm, people came together to feed and help each other out when no one had food or electricity.
