Karnes City Reviews

3 reviews
Karnes City is a small town in South Texas with an emphasis on family life and good moral values. While the job opportunities in the area are wonderful, and there are many up and coming opportunities becoming available, Karnes City is also about a 30-45 minute commute to larger cities such as: Beeville, Seguin, and San Antonio. The public school system cannot be beat! There is a large support system in the community that gives back to the schools. The police department and volunteer fire department are not only helpful, but create and provide fun, safe activities throughout the year for our residents and visitors. There are multiple gyms nearby and through the area, and updated and inviting city park for people of all ages, and there are multiple shops and restaurants for all tastes.
