Racine is a decent place to live and raise a family. It's relatively quiet, the crime rate is low, and before the industrial down turn a few years ago, work was plentiful here in the city for our industrial and blue collar workers. A lot of the companies took their business and moved over seas, which hurt our economy in so many ways. If I had to do it all over again, I would still choose to live here in Racine, with the exception of the extreme cold weather, and low paying or no jobs. Otherwise, this city is not a bad place to be, live, raise a family, have a home and build a life.
