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!
Watertown is a great town! Only complaint is the neighboring city is becoming very bad. Crime has leaked into my town and will more than likely continue. Taxes are high here and sadly there is nothing really to do in this town but it can always be much worse.
