My overall experience with Alvarado has been quite memorable, not only did I grow up here but my family has lived in that town for many years. The beautiful country side as allowed myself to gain different insights on life, a few things I would like to see different is fixing the roads.
Review Alvarado
Alvarado is starting to grow many businesses have started to pop up and it is nice to see that happening but if only we had a more beautiful scene. I'm not saying we don't its just that we have been the same scene for a long time and i would like to see a better change like clothes store opening up a better park.
Alvarado is a quiet little town with a fair amount of small businesses and corporations operating. the town is rather well kept despite the town being so small. my only complaint are the lack of sidewalks most of the time if you want to walk anywhere you have to dodge cars among other thing, and the lack of things to do.
