Watertown Town Reviews

Pretty small town with a decent community. Has two school systems and a pretty nice downtown area. The upper side of the town is less developed being farther away from the two high schools. It has a large mall and all the basic amenities in regards to business and food.

I personally find the area to be quite dull and if you do not enjoy winter it is not the best choice for you. There are many who have spent their lives here and love it, it just does not offer much for teens/young adults unless they enjoy a winter sport.
Outside of a few rough areas of town you likely wont run into any dangerous situations if you keep your head on your shoulders. There is a large drug problem however that is mostly kept out of sight and is not a huge risk to anyone who isn't purposefully seeking those parts of town out.
