I have lived here for only a few years, but I have enjoyed my time here. It is a quiet small town that is safe. I feel like I can be out after dark without worrying about what will happen. My little brother is able to ride his bike all around town safely. It is the quintessential small town!

I have lived in Panhandle all of my life. I love raising my kids in Panhandle, it is very safe and the schools are top notch. It is a perfect family town and everyone watches out for everyone, commute time to larger cities is worth it because of the quiet and safe environment we are lucky enough to live in!
Love Panhandle! One of the best small towns in the area. Good food, the local doctor's office is great, and cute downtown strip.
