It's a really beautiful, friendly little town - at least it would be if there weren't so many junkies hanging out on Main Street all the time. Ware is actually a cross between Belchertown and Indian Orchard. There are really nice areas, and the Main Street area is very well-kept with lots of mom and pop shops, but right behind Main Street, on both sides, are projects. It's bizarre.

Everyone knows everyone. There are a lot of fires. There are a lot of drugs too. People leave their needles lying around. Children walk around alone. Everything is in walking distance. The Walmart is convenient.
Overall I feel safe in this town! Most towns have a little bit of crime and this is one of them of course, but I've never feared for my life. I could easily walk around town and feel safe.
