South Barrington Reviews

Crime is not very prevalent in our area. Recently, people have been driving from the south side of the city to our town and stealing cars. These incidents have only happened a few times, but I personally know people who have been affected by it. Other than those recent events, crime is very low in my town.

The area I live in may be compared to living in a bubble. Most people who live here generally stay in this comfortable zone of middle to upper class living. Personally, I have branched out by traveling to different areas which has broadened my prospective of the world.
I absolutely love it in Barrington. It is a really nice area with plenty of things to do on weekends. The distance you need to travel to get to a grocery store or a mall is pretty far which would be the only downside of living here.
