Wells Reviews

1 review
Wells Nevada is a small town with not much to it. Each and every single person knows the other and there isn't anything no one won't know about you, or think they know. I've lived here my whole life. I love the fact I can walk anywhere without much traffic and feel pretty safe. The people are friendly but when you are around the same people all the time, you get sick of them. At least they will have your back though.
