Swansea Reviews

3 reviews
Swansea is the perfect blend of the small town environment. The people are kind and friendly. The town is rough around the edges, lacking cleanup needed in certain areas, but the town stays true to tradition in a healthy balance of modern and the past.

I absolutely love this little town. Every one here is very friendly and it really gives you and real sense of community.
I would like to see Swansea be built up. Its such a poor community and is considered the poor side of Lexington County. I would like for Swansea to have better school systems and better resources for the schools. I would like to see more things for young people to do.
