People are leaving reviews of Douglas saying how small it is with nothing to do. My review is going to be a "bit" different....
We recently moved to a MUCH smaller town than Douglas. With that being said, Douglas is "THE PLACE" for us.
Not to go out and see a show. Not to find a night club and do some of my stand up. NO! It's the nearest place if us to hit up places like "Wally World". Or grab some street tacos at that one guy set up on the main drag. We can actually get ourselves some "dominos" there too!
You see.....
We moved from So Cal (Comifotnia, as I like to refer to it) to this small, 2000 population town to get away from that other state. Little did I research that the nearest Walmart was around 50 miles away SO.....

At least it's a straight shot down the 191, 2 lane highway, if you see more than a couple cars passing from the opposite direction it's strange and consider it "rush hour".
People are pleasant. Many have strong Hispanic accent. Border town.

I have been a resident of Douglas for twenty years so this small border town is home. Very small quiet community where everyone knows everyone. Many changes can be made to make this community what it once was. Instead of seeing growth here in Douglas, unfortunately, we are seeing the complete opposite. Many of the stores here are family owned and many have gone out of business. Very unfortunate but it has happened and continues to do so. Youths do not have much of a selection of activities to do around town especially since the night-life is more than non-existent. Job opportunities are slim to none so it can difficult to find a job especially for those who are part time college students looking for a part time job. Douglas has a lot to offer and many expectations amongst the community. I truly believe and hope that Douglas can grow and prosper.
I moved here from Hawaii when I was very young. It is a very small/low-income border town, with not much to do for both children and teens. Therefore, there isn't much of a "night life" here, at all. I would say, overall, it can be a pretty safe, "family friendly" town; in fact, I would say it's really family-oriented. It is not as diverse as other cities, but it does have a mix of races and ethnicity. Lastly, its real estate market has actually been increasing recently, though it is extremely difficult to acquire a job here - making its affordability quite low.
