Glen rose is a very small town, with friendly neighbors and citizens. Mainly Christian views, and very nice schools. Many community events, and a nicely groomed town overall.(Nationally ranked) However, along with good towns there is a bad side. More drugs than expected can be found on the outskirts of town, and but crime rate is extremely low. Overall a great place if you hang out with the right crowd!

I love beautiful home town of Glen Rose, Texas. They are always supportive of any accomplishments I achieve. They have many tourist opportunities including Fossil Rim Wildlife resort, Dinosaur Valley State Park, Dinosaur World, Creation Museum, the exposition center, and the Texas Amphitheater. Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Station even has tourist possibilities to check into. Also, it contains several hotels. I'm not sure exactly what I would change at this point and time.
Typical Small town Texas, with a great family attitude. The school system is great. The town is friendly, and there are plenty of outdoor activities nearby! Plus you're only an hour or so from the city.
