Paullina Reviews

I would enjoy raising my future kids in an area like this. The small town atmosphere is something I really enjoy, mostly because there is little crime and everybody watches out for everybody. I do wish there was more to do around the town in the winter, but during the fall, spring and summer months I enjoy riding bike and walking the trail around the lake. Also, it is amazing how the whole town comes together to support the sports teams and other extra-curricular activities.

A few years ago there were a few car break ins, but the police were efficient in finding the kids who were responsible. Word travels fast in a town like Paullina, so it was easy to be prepared if another break in would occur. However, crime is very rare here.
