Review of Graham, North Carolina


Small town, small pay...
Star Rating - 12/6/2006
I am originally from Overland Park, KS...a suburb of the greater downtown Kansas City Metro area. I am now 32, and up until a year and a half ago, I lived in the Kansas City area. The economy here vs. KC (among other things) is vastly different. The cost of living is a bit lower, the pay is ridiculously lower, and it is much more racist (and I am white). On the other hand, it has more of a small town environment (people I don't even know are waving to me on the road), and the scenery is far better than you are ever going to see in KS. Evergreens everywhere...the ocean is only about 4 hours away, and I can yell at the top of my lungs in the house and the 6 closest neighbors can't hear me. Of course, after living basically my whole life in the Kansas City metro area, I can tell you MUCH more about that.
