West Point is a quaint town full of charm and southern hospitality. Everyone treats you like family and makes sure you feel at home while in town. Perfect place for families!
Review West Point
This town is relatively homey. The people are polite. The public school systems are known for being good. There aren't a lot of jobs, so most people drive about 30 minutes to get to work. There are always houses for sale. There are a lot of churches and restaurants. There isn't a lot to do on the weekends.
