Carson County Reviews

1 review
Carson County was very good schools, with excellent educators. The county is located east of Amarillo, Texas which includes convenience to excellent health care, shopping and nightlife. The County has a Medical Clinic located in Panhandle, retirement living center, day care and golf course. In addition to the local police department and county sheriff's office, there are two other units of the DPS located in Panhandle. Great place to call home for so many other reasons.
