Watertown Reviews

2 reviews
I live in a small town in middle Tennessee called Watertown. I have lived here since I was 5 years old and am moving away to school soon, about 45 minutes away. This town holds some very dear memories as I have had some good times on almost every road in the area. I love this area because you don't have to go far to get out and away from all of the lights and get out into the country, but you also don't have to go far to reach the city (closest large city being Nashville, about 40 minutes away.) The people in this small town are generally very hospitable and kind, however you do eventually cross paths with the opposite of that, as you would anywhere else. This tiny town may not look like much, but it's home and I wouldn't trade the memories I've made here for anything.

It is a very small town, there is not much to do, but the people are nice. The square is adorable, and full of local shops.
