Rio Grande is small, but it is home. I have lived in this area for most of my life. There are not many activities to do here. Instead, it is just a small, serene country place I call home. My job, family, and friends are close, and that is all I need.

The town has come along way since I moved here. However, the building conditions are very old and may not seem welcoming to visitors from other towns.
