    There is nothing to do here, its just oil and that's about it. Our biggest attraction is a museum about oil products! I wish I was joking. The sunsets are pretty and some of the people are really nice, but the tumble weeds are not

    Midland is a continuously developing western Texas town. Between it's sister city; Odessa, practically everything you need can be found here. Downfalls: 1. Cost of living is very high for such a rural area. Comparable to living in a large city like Dallas or Austin. 2. People are very nice here but not very health conscious. Because Midland lacks the demand for organic foods and culturally diverse foods Midland lacks supply for these things as well. Recently a Greek restaurant and an Indian restaurant closed. Now the dining experiences are largely comprised of Tex-mex. Lacking in food variety!!!
    It's a great city to raise a family in. You will find it very quiet most of the time, since it's in the southwestern part of US. So it's country as it gets. Midland city has that touch of country and city all mushed up together. It is hot most of the year. It also has short winters for those folks who don't like cold weather very much this is your niche. Your very welcome to Midland!
