People are very friendly there, going there today to attend St Louis Catholic Church for the first time this morning. I'm JC Ponce from San Antonio Texas. I been going to castroville for years. I fantasize about getting married and having a good family there. Falling in love in San Antonio Texas was just not my style and I feel uncomfortable to live here. If I lived in castroville texas, my life would blossom into something more interesting. I just maybe have a chance to find love in a big town like castroville texas. Love the food, love the agriculture, and love the people. That's how life should be everyone accept ing everyone for who and what they are.

Castroville is the town I grew up in and the community is the reason I am the person I am today. Everyone is very supportive and they love to help one another when need be. Castroville is a small and tightly knit community with many opportunities for work for teenagers and anyone else who needs a place to work. It is a great place to grow up but the only downside is that there is not much of a nightlife other than that it is a great place to live! Small towns raise the best people and I am so blessed to be apart of it.
Castroville is a quaint little town with a variety of things to do. There is a Regional park with a river, hiking, soccer fields, basketball courts, and more. Castroville has nice restaurants including the Alsatian, Julianna's, and Alsatian Hotel. Castroville is a cute town to be in!
