Winooski Reviews

3 reviews
After living in Winooski for the past year, I have really enjoyed the convenience to downtown, although still being in a smaller city/town. The ability to walk to hiking trails is also a plus. The round-about is a great feature as they have wonderful restaurants as well as some night-life from the few local bars.
The biggest down fall that I have recently discovered, or should I say more than likely am assuming is the increase in what appears to be drug dealing. It's difficult to see small plastic bags, (drug size) when walking the dog. Although I feel safe presently, I don't know what will come of this as there will always be new drugs out there to get a better "high" in which could increase burglary and so forth. I care a lot about the community and people in it as that is my passion, nursing. I would like nothing more than to receive this scholarship to assist in furthering my nursing education to a BSN.
