Shoals Reviews

3 reviews
Shoals is great for small town living. Everyone knows everyone else, it has a family feel. The school is small but it's nice to know your classmates. If you like exploring nature, you can find a lot to do but there's not much else. No variety for food without traveling to surrounding towns. No movie theatre or nightlife.

Shoals is a small community and it is quite atmosphere where country living is the best. People keep to themselves and are helpful when needed. I love living there.
I like that a lot of the people are nice to a certain degree. What needs to change is the crooked and corrupt pigs 'cops' that pick on people just because of last names and public popularity. I would like to see the justice system change and get better, more for the people instead of lining their own pockets. I doubt it, though.
