Alvin used to be a pretty small town, but has grown quite a bit in the last couple of decades. Most people still know everyone and there are a lot of community projects. The community college is popular in the Houston area in general, so a lot of people are here for that. It has an interesting history with being the home of a German internment camp during WWII. It has lately become more of a retirement town and is generally pretty quiet.
Alvin is an older, run-down town that is surrounded by bigger, nicer cities. Although, there is a junior college in Alvin, the night life here is nonexistent. The city of Alvin, including myself could benefit from a larger selection of restaurants and activities to participate in.
This community is great overall! We do need more things to choose and a variety of places to eat. We often have to go to surrounding cities for the extras, but the small town community is a trait that is second to none!
