Fort Sam Houston Reviews
Rating 3.85 out of 5 20 reviews
I live on a military base and I must say it is very convenient and close to everything. I also feel very safe being that I am on a highly secured base filled with police and military personnel. This community is also very close, we know all our neighbors and even the kids are close. This community also have a lot of free events for the kids and families which makes it pretty awesome.
Attending Robert G. Cole High School has been my first experience at a public school on a military base. Every student's parent or parents are in the military, and all of my classmates can identify with each other. Most students move every three years or less. For this reason, it has inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and welcome newcomers. Similarly, Joint-Base Fort Sam Houston reflects our nation's values and creates community through culture and diversity.
Fort Sam Houston is a clean living area. As someone visiting family. I can safely how clean its been every time I've visited.
Overall nice and clean town with a lot to do around the riverwalk. There are diverse shops and restaurants and a large military presence. I would like to see better recycling programs both on base and off base and don't think Texas does as well as it could be to protect the environment.
We are located on a U.S. military installation. The MP's are very visible and accessible.
I have nothing good or bad to say about our current representatives simply due to the fact that there is nothing about them that I seen damage or improve our community.
You're likely to see frequent moving every time summer roles around. Pets are a very welcomed part of the community and we regularly host fairs and other public events to encourage community union.
In my area we have a pretty strong police presence and therefore don't usually have worry about and abundance of crime plaguing the area.
The most important thing to remember here is that heat is the prevalent status. When it rains it often comes with a thunderstorm so you should be prepared for that. Also, in the winter it can become surprisingly cold but there won't be any snow.
Most people in the area I live in work booths at in, at, around, or four the local stores. Otherwise they all work for the military and while that job is great for those who choose it, it also requires a commitment far larger than you may want make.
There's a pretty great variety of businesses to cater to your needs within a 30 minute trip in any direction. Usually fou can find something your looking for with ease.
South Texas is in a several year drought, so lush, green lawns are hard to come by. Houses are well maintained and look nice.
South Texas has its own beauty. Some see the "great brown nothing," but it is alive in the hill country with several local and exotic species of animals. Water is a little more scarce than in other parts of the country, but there is still some fishing. The hunting is excellent.
Very temperate winters but you better like it hot in the summer.
Lots of little Mexican restaurants in the area, but there are also many other types as well. Some great burger joints and steak houses in the area.
I am not currently looking for employment, but the people I speak with have no problem finding decent jobs they enjoy.
Lots of variety in services and all of them are of good to excellent quality.
