The one thing that could help Rockwell is seeing more businesses coming to the town. For now Rockwell is still fairly small, so it is relaxing and quiet. But because of that there is not much to do around here.

Rockwell is a wonderful city. I have had the privilege of growing up in this safe and quiet town. The people are friendly, the area is beautiful, and though there isn't the nightlife fervor of a large city I proudly call it home.
