Alvarado is just your average small town. There are no major stores, so one must drive 15 miles or more in any direction to reach, well, anything. There is a small library that offers summer programs for children, but I haven't seen any sort of community events in the time that I have lived here. There are a handful of fast food places, such as Whataburger, Sonic, McDonald's, and Chicken Express, but expect subpar food, because it's coming from a subpar town. There seems to be a dark cloud that hangs over the town at any given time, making the residents seem a lot like the Bergens from DreamWorks' Trolls.

It's a small town, but everyone seems friendly and you don't have to worry about much happening. They are always building stuff and making improvements.
There is absolutely nothing to do other than fast food restaurants. Since our town is so small, everyone knows everyone and it really sucks.
