Brenham Reviews

I love this little town, I moved here from Houston, and love every thing about it.

I workout with the local police officers, and government officials, we are all one here.

A lot of people come here for the great events, including Bluebonnet festival, Hot nights Cool tunes, Maifest, and so much more!

I see it expanding and growing, especially with Houston and Austin surrounding this area, A lot of people are moving out to the hill country, to escape the hectic lifestyles of the big city; but I hope Brenham can keep this town small, I love the small town feel here; even if its growing everyday.

I would Love here and stay here in a heart beat, I love this town!
Brenham is the home of the Cubs! Baseball capital of Texas! Home of Blue Bell Creameries! Brenham is a safe and friendly place to live. The townspeople are active in any event going on. Cost of living is somewhat cheap and it offers a great community to you and a great lifestyle. The only thing is I wish Brenham had more attraction to it.
I love Brenham, it's basically the country. Brenham is really calm and collected. I love how the nature is over there, it's beautiful and I love going there to visit family members. Even though it's kind of small place it's still big at heart. There isn't really anything I want to change about Brenham because it is perfect just the way it is. The thing that I love the most is that when you are in Brenham you are free, there is a lot of land that is ours and we can do anything on it since it's rightfully ours. If you have a chance you should visit there because it's just so unique in it's own way. I love how people there are so nice and it's surprisingly diverse which I love as well.
