Cleburne Reviews

Cleburne is full of citizens that are invested in the actions of their town. You can almost always find new community service projects lead by the students, a new charity or donation station at your local H-E-B, and the grandparents of former almuni still attending every sports game. While the citizens are very active in their community and it stays a very inviting place to live, there is not much to do otherwise. There are no name-brand shops, no malls, no roller or ice-skating rinks, no casual diners or cafes (unless you count Starbucks), and no place to have traditional fun, especially for kids and teens. Cleburne and its residents are always working to better themselves and their environment, but we are not yet the best that we can be and so there are a few setbacks to that. Cleburne is growing and expanding everyday. Pretty soon, I can almost guarantee the local kids won't be calling it that boring a place to live anymore.

When I first came to Cleburne, I thought, 'Wow what a hobunk out of the way backwoods town in the south!' But after living here for a year or so, I can truly say, that this is home. The people are very nice and sweet once you get to know them. And although, I'm not the most social of people, I have met some very sweet down to earth people. It's a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city as well. The only thing, they need to work on is thier town's pride. The entire town gives you the impression that it is trying to be like a much larger city! And it's too small, and out of the way for all of that. It's a bit embarrassing the way it makes us natives feel.
Cleburne is a small city, but it comes with a lot of variety. There is plenty to do in our town. We have a mini water-park, nicknamed Splash-station, which on a summer day provides hours of fun. Take a morning stroll in Hulen Park and enjoy the view. Explore our historical downtown with its culturistic shops. Need to go shopping, no problem. With three major stores, Kroger, H-E-B, and Wal-Mart, you can easily find what you're looking for. Hungry, we have Sonic, Braums, Schlotzky's, and many other famous restaurants. Over the past three years that I have lived here, Cleburne is a lovely city to settle into.
