San Carlos Reviews

It's an okay community. Not much to do around here, no parks or popular fast good joints or good stores. Though it is quite peaceful and we have our annual church festival which is a big deal in our town. We have a great sense of community and good schools. It's and okay community to live in, though you do have to be careful of what parts you decide to live in as some neighborhood kids love vandalizing fences with their graffiti.
