Brownwood is a small town. I have found that Brownwood is a very hospitable town. Everyone is very nice. The lake is beautiful and has many activity's. Not very many big name stores here in Brownwood, but a lot of smaller and self owned businesses. The mall is small but hey at least we have one. The mall has a movie theater in it. Recently they have opened up the lyric theater. The have put on several plays since the opening and have had rave reviews. Brownwood has many parks throughout the town from small to big. The town has many places to eat weather it be fast food you are interested in or a sit down restaurant. Overall Brownwood is a great place to live or to visit.
Being a small town, everyone knows everyone so crime is pretty low. When we get vandalism sprees it is most often bored teens up to no good. I believe the whole town operates in a very routine way and any deviations are noted. Law enforcement does their job, sadly the court system here is very small town in that they pretty much do whatever they want. Recently a minority was given a lifetime sentence for attacking his fiances daughter which is horrible and he got life which I think is extreme considering we have repeating sex offenders or murders who get sentenced to less. With a small town mentality I believe it is more on who you know that justice which is sad.
I love this place! The people are friendly, the restaurants are nice, and it has all the perks of a small town without the big city traffic. I love it here!
