I enjoy Newcastle. I have lived here my whole life and it is a nice little town. I enjoy the high school sports just like any small town in the midwest. Newcastle has decent places to eat along with very nice people around the town. Like I said before, it is a smaller town, but it is prett well kept and a clean town with good people.

I kinda like Newcastle as it is pretty affordable to live in, and it is a small little town. It is probably a lot better for people who want land or want to live in a small country town after retirement. It has lots to do if you are an outside person, as there are lots of hiking trails, fishing, a lake, among other similar activities. This town does slightly lack in indoor activities though. There is little diversity in jobs, but there are some for whoever looks for them.
Very nice town, gives the resident a small-community feel. There's always a place to go in the case of trouble, and the community all know each other.
