Great small town! Perfect atmosphere for anyone planning to work and raise a family. I have lived in Peru for over ten years now and although there isn't too much to do like larger cities, Peru is a safe and convenient town.
Peru is a very small town. They are family friendly. The town has a home town feeling. It’s a town where everyone k it’s everyone. Peru doesn’t have many activities to do. Wish the town has more things to do for the community.
I like that Peru is a small town, a good place to grow up. It isn't like your bigger cities, in fact, many people don't even bother locking their doors at night. Everyone knows everyone, so things are spread a lot but that is expected in small towns like Peru. A safe, quiet place to grow up.
I love the small town feel of Peru. Everyone is well acclimated with each other. We are all a family. I would like to see more advances in our town, such as more businesses and job openings for others in need in our community.
I have lived in Peru for 10 years. I raised my children in this area and love that it has a small hometown feeling. The people in our community are so friendly and love to help each other out. The best part is it is the Circus City Capital of the World.
I like the small town living. I live on the outskirts of town. I wish there were more restaurants as opposed to fast food and maybe some other places to shop besides Kmart.
Peru is a small town we are the Circus Capital of the World that brings people from all over the United states to watch our hometown circus that our kids work so hard to put on. If I could change one thing about our city is that we need more things like a skating rink, bowling alley, or a community pool. There is just nothing here for our kids. Sure the circus is great but it is not for everyone and it is for one week only in the summer.
It is a decent town, not a lot happens around there, but people are trying to make new and exciting things happen in it. However, there are still many people that are set in their ways that do not want to make changes or participate in events in town that make the community come together, which is sad. However, the people seem to keep their ways to boost local businesses, instead of letting bigger corporations take over and make people loose their businesses/jobs.
I have lived in Peru for the past two years now with my husband and children. Peru is the Circus City Capitol of the World! The community surrounding the Peru area is tight-knit and a perfect place to raise my children.
There is absolutely nothing going on in the small town of Peru. It is a nice little community though, with Grissom Air Force Base.
I was born and raised in Peru. At 18 years of age, I could think of nothing but leaving the town. After 6 years in the Marines, 4 years in Los Angeles, 3 years in Chicago and a year in Memphis, all I could think about was moving back to my hometown. At 46 years old presently, I am thankful for being able to raise my own children in this quiet mid-western town. While there aren't many job opportunities, it's still safe, quiet and a very friendly community where others go out of their way to help others. Could not imagine living anywhere else.
I love living in Peru it's quiet and peaceful. Its small everything is in walking distance. The only thing i would change are job opportunities and stores in town.
Peru has a lovely view. Many outdoor activities to do. Peru is the circus capital of the world. The largest amateur circus made up of entirely children up to 19 years old.
not much crime in this town just usual small things.
it has its good points and everyone basically knows everyone in town which isn"t really all that bad/
It needs maintenance to make the town look nice.
The town is scared to expand.
