I love Watertown because it is true small town living. Everyone knows eachother and are always willing to help one another in a time of need. I love my little town and wouldn't change a single thing about it!
It's a small, quaint little town with just about everything you need! There's a variety of restaurants to choose from, a few places to shop for clothes, and with the addition of a dog park it will be complete!
