    Kerr county, specifically Kerrville, is very much a retirement committee with few things to do. Though there is several organizations for the veterans there is only a small mall and movie theater in regards to contemporary entertainment. Despite this there are many small stores in the downtown that are interesting, a large theater program for all ages, and a large park with the Guadalupe running through it. Overall, it is a good retirement community, however there is very little to do for the younger generations, leaving the youth and college students isolated from most of the community.
    Overall is a very safe community. It is also right along to Guadalupe river which is a bonus. The town of Kerrville is very pretty as well. There are abundance of boutiques to visit while in Kerrville. There is also an opportunity to explore the beautiful Texas hill country.
