Vancleave Reviews

Vancleave is a small town of around 5k people. There's four schools and the Jackson County Technology Center. There is no night life to speak of, outside of house parties on sketchy roads. It's safe, since there's really nothing to do here. However, there have been meth labs found in the city. There is one grocery store, a Pizza Hut that doesn't deliver, a Subway, and multiple gas stations. If you would want to go to Walmart or any other large store, you would have to go to another town, which is around a twenty minute drive at least. Most of Vancleave is either trees or farms, so at least everything is green.

I have lived in Vancleave my entire life, its where my partner was born and raised, it is where our kids were born and raised. It is a tight knit home grown community. Most of the population would go out of their way to do for you. Life is easy and quiet, I grew up no locking my door or our vehicles. Its home, you trust your neighbors and know your community. Its the perfect place to raise your family outside the busy town living.
Vancleave is a small, family-oriented community. There are a few local businesses, which the community supports proudly. It can be compared to "Mayberry".
