Montezuma Reviews

Montezuma is your typical small town where everyone is very friendly and willing to help out in a pinch! I love that my children get to grow up in the same community that my husband and I grew up in. One thing I would like to see change is the variety of places to eat and more shops.

I love that I feel safe in my community. This is the kind of town where locking your doors isn’t necessary. It’s a great place to raise a family.
