Wedowee Reviews

Living in Wedowee is amazing. The area is quite, friendly, and is very small. You do not have to travel very far for anything you need. With Lake Wedowee being in my town, I see new faces throughout the year. The only thing I would change about this town would be having more restaurants and fast food places. Other than that, Wedowee is a town that I would never move away from. It has a more civil environment than other towns in the world.

The town is small and the criminal justice system is more like the criminal injustice system. They take advantage of the poor under educated population by jailing innocent people and receive pay offs from the criminals
I like that wedowee is a town where you can get along with others and help others.Sometimes having another shoulder to lean on can help out a lot in many ways.
