Sutton Reviews

I have lived the majority of my life in Sutton, NE. The community here is great and nourishing. Everyone feels welcome and accepts one another as if they were family. Although it is a small town, there is always plenty to do, which makes day-to-day life interesting. There is nowhere else I would rather live.

As yout drive into the town, you notice that it is small and quiet. It is a town of about 1,500 and everyone is kind. Everyone knows who everyone is, the atmosphere is cozy and friendly. Like every small town it is revolved around sports. If you are not involved in sports there isn't much for you to do or be involved in. The people are nice, but when you are not a sports star then you are not as involved in the community. The sports kids are alwasy favored more by the community. However, it is quiet and nice and everybody will help you up when you are down.
I would choose to live her again if I could do it all over. The town is small and you get to know everybody. The community is awesome when it comes to high school sports. Sutton is in the perfect spot to be because it's only a half hour away from Hastings and only an hour away from Lincoln. Sutton is a great town to live in.
