    Blanco Reviews

    1 review
    I've been in this town since the day i was born. I'm sure that it would be a fun place to visit for a day, but living here is absolutely terrible. In the school system, if a student doesn't play sports, they're bullied and thrown to the side. They're treated badly just because they don't play a sport. The athletes don't have to worry about passing their classes because even if they never do a page of homework, the teachers will give them good grades. You're safe if you're friends with the right people. At night, everything sleeps. Most restraunts are closed by 8pm and the shops close at 6pm. Blanco is located right in the middle of a few major cities. It only takes an hour or so to get to Austin, San Antonio, and San Marcos. Since the town is so small, the job opportunities are very limited. The town is full of racists, so you won't find much racial diversity here.
