"Depends on what you are looking for"

Home Hill is a wonderful town for Children if they love the outdoors. Going to the beach or creek, fishing. I have lived abroad and in 3 of our biggest cities and have to say there is no pool as beautifully presented as the HH pool - it is the best on a hot summers day. HH Bakery makes beautiful fresh bread and the best long donuts (but you have to get in there early). The local shop keepers are always warm and friendly. This little town has beautiful schools and offers a quieter lifestyle that most country towns offer. If nightlife and partying is what your after Home Hill is possibly not for you :)
Pros
  • Best Pool
  • Best Bread and Long donuts
  • Quiet and Safe
  • Super Friendly
Cons
  • No nightlife

"Okay for a while but then boredom takes over."

Probably the worst town I've lived in - very boring and because of this the teens seem to run wild.

"Quiet, boring, poor resale value."

Would be good if you like the quiet life, nothing much to do.
