Mill City Reviews

2 reviews
Mill City is a quaint little mountain town with a river running through it. It's known for its waterfall which you can go down with you raft, kayak or inner tube. It's also known for their 4th of July parade and fireworks. Mill City got its name for its lumber mills that keep the town prospering. It's continues to grow with new places to eat and their little shops. The town could use a little more community participation with festive holidays and decorating. They have Christmas lighting on a tiny tree which doesn't feel very festive with so many Douglas firs to choose from. They never should've chopped one of the trees down to build their visitors center. People are nice, a lot of unclean yards which don't make the town a pretty place to stay, just pass through.

Just keep driving through. This town does not want outsiders! New people are treated as intruders. Not a friendly place. Lots of meth and the cops do nothing about it. Rent is starting to catch up out here too. No jobs. Do yourself a favor and stay away. Or if you want to see the experience here, watch Blackway on netflix.
