West Hamlin Reviews

West Hamlin is always kept clean, so therefore it is a good environment. The people are so loving and would do anything for when one is in need. There are always grocery stores open that have all the necessities. Surrounded with good people there is always a glow of happiness in the city. Seeing so many people willing to help others really creates a bond with others. What I would like to see change is better restaurants be put in the city. Restaurants in West Hamlin have been in and out of the city for years now. Therefore, I would like to see some good restaurants enter our city and stay for awhile.

The town of West Hamlin is an average town. It has all the essentials, such as a small grocery store, pharmacy, and some restaurants. The people in West Hamlin are super kind and are always willing to help.
Not the best school system, the town seems a bit run down. I think there is only one or two places to eat, not much else to do in terms of activity's. I wouldn't recommend visiting West Hamlin.
