Though it is a small little town that no one really knows exists until they drive through it, Orange is like one big family. Everyone is willing to help out and lend a hand. You hardly ever meet a stranger in Orange, Texas. Everyone knows everyone. People are willing to give the shirt off their backs for you in a time of need. Orange was affected by Harvey just a few years ago and I have never seen a more helpful group of people!

I like the fact that Orange has a small community feel, the LCMISD school district is good, and people are generally friendly.
I am saddened by all of the litter that floats everywhere and the trash that is dumped alongside the roads. Seems to be an abundance of litter and smokers. I've lived here almost a year and have never seen so many smokers in my life.
We also need some quality businesses to move into the area-put us into modern times.
Orange, Texas is just a small country type town. It has a handful of fast food restraunts and a few dine in places. It seems to be a quiet town for the most part. The majority of the population is respectful and respectable. I think they could improve the education/schooling, and also improve family friendly places for young youth to go for guidance, positive learning, positive help, after school activity places.
