Alice is a medium sized town that has some features to admire. Such as the one and only restaurant called Dairy Burger, which is totally different from Dairy Queen. This little restaurant serves the best sweet tea, along with the options of chicken stripes, stake fingers, burgers, chicken burgers, regular fries, or spicy fries. This community is supportive to help one another to donate to organizations such as the Kidz Kloset, the coat drives, canned goods drive, and raising money for other expenses. But this community has always found ways to clean the parks, and have fun events for everybody. If I could change anything about this community I would like to decide to fix up things properly such as cleaning old stores and improving them to a great store.

My experience with living in Alice, Texas is an average experience for me personally. The town does need improvements in terms of the community conditions and conditions of the streets.
Alice went through the oilfield boom and now is suffering from it being redirected towards San Antonio area and the Eagle Ford Shale Area, but the city is really trying and making efforts to rebuild the workforce and area.
