Kerr County Reviews

3 reviews
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.

I love living in this small town. This is a great place to live and to raise a family. It is not that far from the city. The people here are so nice and friendly.
It's a good community if you have kids or are in retirement. If you are looking for career advancement this is not the place for you.
