What I love about Alice is that everyone is very closely related to each other, so it feels like one big family. What I wish would change is how the people treat each other. When I first arrived the students my age were very sarcastic to each other but they never seemed hurt by the words. I know they probably do hurt when they hear those mean words, but their mindset is to always act strong and pretend that it doesn't affect them. I just wish that the people of Alice would not be rude to each other, and just love one another.
Review Alice
I truly loved Alice it is a very quiet town it seems to be booming every time I have visited that have had something new popping up, a restaurant, now a new water park. That is going to be a great addition due to the super hot weather in South Texas. The people in Alice are pretty friendly always ready to talk about anything and everything, they make you feel right at home. I have several friends who keep me pretty updated but we all have such busy lives. Alice is a great place to raise a family.
Alice is a oil field town. It is small, cramped and overpriced. There really isn't much good from Alice, although there is very little traffic. When it comes to things to do in Alice there isn't much, a few rundown parks, and really that's it. Alice is the kind of town you've lived most of your life that when you finally move out, you realize how awful it is.
