This town has an amazing, beautiful sense of community as well as a gorgeous mountain landscape surrounding it.
Alpine is a great community. The local people are great to get along with especially when you need help. The Sul Ross State University students are heavily involved with the local community and hold several activities that everyone is encouraged to go to for a great social experience and to have a good time. There are several hiking spots, food trucks, and more.
