Working in Longview
Longview is a great place to start a family at! The environment is peaceful for a city, and very country for your southern taste. You will find a lot of nice schools near by and locally, even as far as colleges and universities go. There are beautiful parks and lakes around and in town, and lots of our favorite restaurants to grab a quick bite or have a night of with family and friends! We have other forms of entertainment too, like theaters and inside arcades, racing go carts, and even trampolines! We have hospitals, dental cares, beauticians, and many other types of other offices and business to take care of your personal needs. Longview has it all!
Longview is about as "East Texas" as it gets. It is a super small town, but easily feels like home. There are two parts of town (the good part, and the bad part), but as long as you just mind your business and do not get into any trouble, there is nothing to worry about. Oh, and did I mention - Longview has EVERY restaurant you could ever think of, all on ONE road (loop 281)??? It is every person's dream! Being from Houston, Texas though, I do wish that H-E-B would find its way to Longview, that would be the cherry on top! But to sum it up, Longivew is a great town for people of all ages and occupations. Its a good college town, a good family town, and a great town for the retired!
I have only lived in Longview for less than a year now but absolutely love it! The people are very kind and very welcoming, you can see why Texas is know for its southern hospitality. Our neighborhood is very safe and beyond family friendly. the parks are kept clean and have many opportunities for outdoor activities. We love it hear and plan on staying for a while.
