    The top industries in Berwyn Heights would be travel, hospitality, and tourism. The employments would be transportation, warehousing, retail, wholesale trade. There is a lot of job opportunities. There is also a elementary school in Berwyn Heights to work at and several Doctors' Offices. The top company I believe would be the Lab Corp corporation since there is a lot of medical workers there. There is also a children's pediatrics' Office in the same building and several other medical offices. I think what most people do for a living is work at something they like doing.

    The weather in this area is great. In the summer time is not as hot as it is in Florida, in the spring it mostly rains but has a nice temperature, in the fall is still a great weather, and in the winter is where the road is sometimes slippery when it snows with rain. The most recent natural disaster was this year. Since it was raining to much, one of the pipes got really filled up with water and went flooding to several house with 1-8 inches. In this disaster there were a lot of reporters that reported the tragedy on the news. This affected many people's life's in Berwyn Heights because they had to pay for all the damages. The most essential item in my wardrobe are my clothes and my shoes.

    In Berwyn Heights there are variety of businesses. There are a lot of restaurants to chose from to go out to eat. Berwyn Heights is a very small and calm town that you can even go walking to any office or stores. One of the most popular restaurant is Chipotle, you can see sometimes people waiting in line outside. The rate I give to Chipotle from 1-10 would be 10. It is very organized. You can get everything you need in this area. There is a CVS which has a drive-thur. In Berwyn Heights there are two seven elevens that I would rate a 10, not only because it is always clean but the employees are very nice people.
