Southampton Reviews

Southampton is a quaint, cozy town in every season except for the summer. The beaches are spectacular, and there is a lot of choice between choosing a crowded beach and a secluded beach. One thing about Southampton that I would like to see change is more integration of the city people that come during the summer and the locals that live there year-round.

I liked all of the areas in Southampton and the beaches in the summer it was very calm but something I would like see change is the city people coming in just for the summer and taking over any locals that are there and running the place I would also like to see a hotel being used or built in the Southampton town for visitors for local stores and restaurants.
Southampton is a very prominent town. It has everything for everyone. One change would be the amount of traffic, its basically one road in one road out.
