Review Big Spring
Big Spring is a nice, semi-quiet town. It offers a nice city and state park, for walking and feeding ducks. Big Spring has three main grocery stores including Wal-Mart, HEB and Porters. The town does not have many entertainment outlets but does offer bowling, movies, and a skate land. It has few places to eat, mainly mom-and-pop restaurants, and fast food chains. However just a short distances down the road in each direction is a well known Texas town for shopping and entertainments. The city has beautiful views or the sky and sunset. The community itself is very strong and supportive, and always willing to help a neighbor.
For being considered a "small town" Big Spring has many opportunities to offer. The community college, Howard College, has one of the largest attractions of the town. People from all over the world come to Howard College to play sports and continue their education. The town also offers many job opportunities including but not limited to: The Geo Group, VA Medical Center, State Hospital, and FCI Federal Prison.
The town is an average sized West Texas town. The atmosphere revolves around heritage, football oil and more football. Although the town is generally diverse we often come together as a community when supporting families and other events. If I could choose to do it all over again, I would choose to move here sooner. Our high school does not get the best ratings but we are granted with amazing opportunities that aren't offered even 13 miles down the road. Being compared to the rest of this country wouldn't be fair. It's an oil town off of 1-20 with a diverse community that has one big heart. I think the future for this town will remain the same, being remembered as giving the world a few football players, country singers and doing the best we can.
