Rockledge Reviews

3 reviews
Rockledge is a quiet and small town. A nice place to raise a young family with multiple parks/ playgrounds, daycares and a walking trail. But this can become an issue when kids become teenagers. Unless they have friends close by it will become tiring to drive them to the closest mall (about 25 minutes away). And its difficult to find jobs within Rockledge because it is so small the only things there are more than one of is bars or churches.

Not a bad place to live. Too many road closures and parking reestrictions during special events and parades, which happen a few times a year.
The train station is within walking distance so you are able to get into the city, the city has everything. This area is close to everything but no one seems to care much about it and it seems to be in decline.
