Pine River Reviews

I moved here from Florida to be a part of a smaller town. I felt a slower pace of life and the chance to be a part of a Christian community that truly cares was exactly what I needed. Pine River is beautiful. The town offers everything you need and there is a great walking and biking trail that allows you to feel closer to nature. The larger cities are a short drive away when you want to go to a concert or sporting event.

In Pine River, I'd like to see more change with kindness. People should learn to love each other and not cause so much drama.
