Morris Reviews

Morris is a very connected and welcoming community for all of its inhabitants. It's quiet and safe, and manages to provide an overall "cozy" feeling. It's not uncommon to go somewhere and meet friends, or even family, while out on a daily commute. Quiet means there isn't much traffic or crime to be concerned about, but that also means the nightlife doesn't have much of a presence either. Morris is a place for families to settle down and for those working to get into the routine of their jobs - it doesn't so much embody to the eventfulness and liveliness of big city areas.

Morris is a Small town with not much to do. It is a placce to settle down, and raise your children. It has one of the best schools in the state.
I like that Morris is a small town and has several local businesses and shops. I would like to see more diversity in Morris.
