Watsontown is a nice, small community where crime is non-existent and people generally look out for one another. I think one area I would like to see improved would be more community outreach. There are some nice community events, however.

It is a safe, beautiful town full of kind humble people and the amount of events that the town has especially during summer is amazing. I have moved a lot in life and this town is by far the nicest I’ve lived in. A truly blessed town
I would like to see more things to do in Watsontown. There isn't much to go out and do and if I want to go out and do something I have to drive farther than if therre were activities to do in town.
