Growing up in a small town like Giddings has definitely had its positives as well as negatives. Some things that I enjoyed was the small town hospitality, where everyone knows and supports each other. Having that connection with fellow peers is something really special.
Small town with small town feel. We've got local stores and many restaurants. It's one of those towns you drive through but never really stop at. It has a pretty well known high school in the area.
