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.
Review Alamo
Alamo, Texas is a peaceful city to live in. Every year there is a watermelon festival during the Spring and it has become such a nice tradition for the community. The city is such a friendly environment. I would definitely recommend people to live in Alamo.
I like Alamo, Texas ever since I moved over to Alamo from Edinburg. The people are nice; There are many warm-hearted people. I live off of Nebraska, a few streets from Eldora road. I would like to see Alamo help build new roads--I want Alamo to take initiative to repair Eldora road. Eldora road is very bumpy.
