Progreso Reviews

I have always lived in Progreso, Tx. I went to school here in Progreso, Tx. Progreso is a very small town and everybody knows everyone here in this town. This is a really small town and there is not a lot to say about this town because its really small. Everybody knows everything about everyone. Its a nice and small town and most of the time its always quiet. We always have a nice Christmas,fourth of july, Thanksgiving,parties and other holidays. We always have good times in this town and good times with our families as well. It may be a small town but we always have fun here.

The city, or more like a town, is very boring. It is not a big place nor is it anything that is special. The city has average spirit within it, but it is not as cheerful as the other cities close to it like Weslaco, Texas. Not only that, but the people who run the city, and the police and other workers within it, are either corrupt or do not care about doing a good job at whatever they work at.
