Not bad. Nice place, nice town, and nice people. Posted On: 4/3/2007 7:47:47 PM
I can tell you that this is one of the nicest cities of the whole state. Not a bad place to live, and the people are friendly, there are plenty to do, and lots of places to shop and see. (Lake Cumberland if you get the chance is breath taking.) There are drawbacks as there are with any place. But, I lived there for four years and I liked it for the most part. The summers are kind of hot and extremly humid. ( If you move here do not forget to get a home with a/c.) The jobs aren't that great and don't pay very well unless you have a degree. Then they are still kind of hard to find. (Hope you like long commutes!) If you don't like alot of snow then the winters are nice. Not much snow and ice but still a little cold dropping below freezing a few times. Make sure to secure a job before you move here! Although, the cost of living here is not that bad. I don't have a degree and I had no trouble living in the main part of the city. But, if you can't stand humid weather than don't move here.
DONT BOTHER!!!! Save yourself the headache!!!! Posted On: 3/24/2007 9:18:49 PM
I have lived around Mansfield Ohio for the last 15 years. I am moving out of this whole state, ASAP. Do yourself a favor and anyone who is reading this post, and is considering moving here, don't bother. It is freezing here for four months out of the year. Then after that it rains for another two months. I hope you don't like sunny weather cause there is not alot of that here either. This past winter it had a wind chill factor of -17 below for more than two weeks. It was so cold that my kids could not go to school.Snow and ice is bad here too. There are no jobs and no future in the jobs that are here. The property violence is also getting way out of hand. This past year people were slicing and destroying christmas decorations. How sad is that??? The only nice thing about here is the houses are fairly cheap and the summers aren't superhot. That is it!!!
