I think Ballinger is a great place. I have lived here my entire life, and know almost everything about it. It has a great school, and many public entities that are family friendly. Ballinger has an excellent pool, great food, and an exceptional atmosphere about it. It's location between two big cities is pretty nice too. Although there have been some issues with the roads, the city is fixing them. All in all, I think it's a great town.
Review Ballinger
Ballinger is a small, close-knit town that is perfect for raising your family. In such a small community, everyone knows each other, so when someone is in need, we can all come together and help each other persevere.
Ballinger is a small community in West Texas. A strong sense of tradition and community is here. A warm, friendly, inviting little town.
