South Shore Reviews

3 reviews
Very good for rugged, outdoorsy people looking to enjoy life away from the city while still reaping the benefits of having Portsmouth across the river. Internet can be spotty so be careful of that. Has a nice little downtown area with a local grocery, auto store, and odds and ends place.great for students of Shawnee.

Not really much to do in South Shore. Quite town, usually quite safe. There are a few issues with drugs in this area though
Small town with a big heart Has almost a Mayberry feel. Have live here and in big cities I always come back to where I grew up and the people never forget me. It will always be home.
