Review of Macomb, Illinois

Macomb - Pros/Cons
Star Rating - 2/10/2008
1. Low crime rate
2. Excellent school system
3. Low cost of living and housing
4. Affordable place to live
5. Home to Western Illinois University, a "Best in the Midwest" college as rated by Princeton Review
6. An overall good place to live

1. Huge drug problem (but the police seem to be making progress)
2. WIU is a big party school (they're making progress alleviating that too)
3. The economy is dominated by WIU, so it's hard to find employment if you don't want to work there
