Born and raised here. Lovely medium sized town with an event center and a hockey team. We have midland, rd nearby the childhood home of George Bush.

There's really not much to do in Odessa, it's not a bad place that we decided to live in but it's not a good place either. There are only the mall and the movies and it's really not that great. We need better places to go out to.
