Newtown Reviews

I love the community in Newtown. Mostly friendly people who are welcoming and love helping others. Public school systems are fantastic, but there is not much to do in the town. If you are unable to drive, you will find yourself feeling very trapped. Regardless, Newtown is a great place to grow up and raise kids!
Review Newtown
It takes a while to get to know the people, but they are very compassionate and down to earth. The town is a mixture of incomes and backgrounds, although not much ethnic diversity. A great place to raise a family!
Newtown is a great place to raise children. Although there is not much to do, and even fast food is outlawed! Once you grow out of the local parks, if you don't play a sport you will find your afternoons empty.
