Fabens is a small town. The community comes together when local families are in need. Kids actually play outside, ride their bikes, and go to the playgrounds at the parks.
I like the country area. I feel free doing activity such as fishing and camping and you don't get to experience it in the city because they have rules and OK love to see animals come around. Fabens is a small town that mostly every one knows everyone and some small businesses stores are closed by .
