Growing up here, I do already have a bias towards Kerrville. There's plenty of places to go, and if you're looking for somewhere to eat, they have it all! I can walk to a number of different places from my home, and driving is low-stress if I decide not to walk. The views are gorgeous, and the people are kind. Kerrville might not have the most things available to do, but for a place to call home, Kerrville fits quite nicely.

I have lived in Kerrville for twenty-six years and think it is a wonderful place to live. It is a great place to raise a family, the public schools are great, the crime rate is low, and the location is close to a large city. It is a retirement community so the cost of living is very high. That makes it difficulty for a lot of people. Overall though, I will definitely live here at least for the next several years and possibly forever.
Kerrville is right in the middle of many short day trips that are wonderful to take. It is only a 45 minute drive to San Antonio if you are looking for great night-life acticities. It is a nice place to live with plenty of stores so that a trip to San Antonio is not even necessary. Many great restaurants also!
