Oberlin Reviews

1 review
What I like about Oberlin is that it is a very nice town and has friendly people. Oberlin is a town where people know everyone and get along well and would help anyone in need. It's a very nice community, has just what you need and is affordable. I would like to see anything change in Oberlin because everything in Oberlin has history behind it and has its own story to it. This is what I like about Oberlin and I wouldn't want anything to change.
