Pullman Reviews

All Categories
I moved to Pullman, Washington to enroll in Washington State University. I came here concern because i did not know the city, people, or activities around. However, after arriving here i figure out that Pullman is a great place to live! It is a calm place to relax during the day, perfect for doing homework. As well, people around is always friendly in all possible ways, and they go by the motto "Cougars help Cougars." Additionally, this applies for everything and its great. Night life around the area is fun, it is a college town therefore the during the weekends you are going to see College Students drinking and having fun all around and of course always under surveillance of campus police. Pullman is a great place to raise a family, go to school, and relax from the stressful city life.
Review Pullman
Pullman is an amazing town! It is home to the University of Washington, and as a result, you get the small town effect with a high degree of intelligence and knowledge. The only problem, is that the student population can make things (especially traffic) a bit difficult, but overall, it is very beautiful and place well worth living.
Pullman is a small college town with limited shopping opportunities. It has a great variety of restaurants to choose from, although some are only open during the college school year or evenings. The hilly landscape is a beauty to behold, although it can be difficult to navigate during inclimate weather conditions. Pullman has a small downtown area with local shops that is not without some charm, although it could benefit from a facelift. Roads are not very well maintained, so snow tires are highly reccommended during winter months. Pullman nightlife is very active, and there are many local taxi services to get you home safely. Despite the nightlife, it is an extremely safe town to live in. If you plan to move to Pullman, be warned that the rental market often gets swarmed with college students and is generally geared to meet their needs.
