My experience living in Alamo Texas is amazing, the neighborhoods are very calm filled with kind people ready to help in times of need. We have local parks for evenings with the family and have both local businesses and all around markets such as Walmart and HEB. Their is always an event to attend and enjoy, festivals, parades and much more. Over all Alamo is a wonderful place to live or visit full great experiences and has a welcoming spirit to all who come.

Not much diversity although, its stores, as well as schools, are in walking distance. There is a new development happening but it is very slow. Overall not as safe as it appears to be but growing up in this town it was okay for the time being.
If urban cities are not your favorite, then Alamo, Texas, is a great city; it is a small town, but I must say that although this town is small, and often not recognized, it actually has a lot to offer to people who want to have a calm life. One thing I would like to see change is diversity. In this town, the majority of the population is Mexican or Hispanic, which is not a bad thing, but it almost feels like the city has naturally been segregated because of the border of Mexico which is a few miles away. I feel that this city has become a homeland for just minorities; it is a great small town that people should not be afraid to live in just because it is mostly populated my Mexicans and Hispanics.
