Robins Reviews

I am a senior in high school that has lived in Robins most of their life. It is a quite town, right next to the larger cities of Cedar Rapids and Marion. It's a mostly residential town, with only a couple small businesses, such as a bank and a restaurant. Overall, it's a wonderful place to grow up, with access to both the Linn-Mar and Cedar Rapids school districts.
