Hondo is like many Texas towns I've lived in far out of the reach of the metropolitan suburbs. Not much to do in town other than speculate on the goings-on in town. High school football is king on Friday nights, as one would expect. I am glad that Hondo is a very tightly knit community, though. You get to know everyone for better or worse and there certainly are more than a handful of characters that live here. There is a noticeable conservative attitude here, but, if that's not your temperament, you can easily find people that are far more liberal in thought around town--one particularly infamous residence paints anti-conservative signs to the delight of many within their neighborhood. Hondo definitely feels like a warm and welcoming home once you decide to put down your roots, though.

Small towns are great! You always know everyone. You never go out to a restaurant, store, gym or any place for that matter without seeing somebody you may know. We all work well and together to build a great community. If there is a tragedy, you see the whole community come together and work together. It's a safe place to live, knowing I'm comfortable, I could see myself raising a family in this town of mine.
Somewhat small town but beginning to have big city troubles. I’m starting to feel like my kids aren’t as safe here as I would like them to be. From a shooting to attempted abductions at Walmart, it’s hard to give a good review.
