I like the new neighborhood that I am in. The people are very nice and welcoming. The Main Street does have one little grocery store for convenience, but in 20-30 minutes you gain access to any store you could want.

Our area is outside Galveston. Summer time is the best in Galveston. This town has a bad reputation from back in the early 1900's as being a lower income community. This was an area that many criminal factors lived. They didn't commit crimes here but hid here. Now those elements are almost gone and in the process criminals moved into the area that would commit crime in the area that they lived. This was one reason the previous criminal element left, at least those that were not arrested,prosecuted and sent to prisons. ( mostly federal).

Those of us that are looking for entertainment and fun will go to Galveston, Dickinson, Clear Lake, Houston. We are a center point for all of these.
I believe Bacliff is an up and coming area. Although it's known to be riddled with drugs and mischief I have yet to have any issues. And it's close to everything.
