San Angelo Reviews

We are stationed here currently and my quick breakdown is this: San Angelo is a very flat, very sleepy little town with lots of stores, big trucks, boats and an alarmingly low education rating. There are a few things to do to occupy time through the libraries, ASU campus and a few little local "museums"; however, San Angelo is very isolated ( about 3.5 hours from any real city.) Upon arrival I was shocked at how many locals and their children are overweight. On the plus side: I feel safe here and locals are friendly and welcoming albeit very close minded and prideful about their "city." (Do not call it a town! You've been warned!) Downtown is dilapidated and the rentals are limited, undesirable and overpriced (sigh) it could be worse but it could also be so SO much better than than it is.

San Angelo is a great city. It is not too big or too small and has the right amount entertainment and restaurants. As far as college entertainment goes, it has the right amount of things to do. In my area of town in particular, I wish some of the streets would be upgraded. Some of the abandoned properties could also be cleaned up and made nicer. The city in general has plenty to do from the river, a historic downtown, unique restaurants and bars, lake and recreational activities as well as many other family friendly activities.
San Angelo is a city. Housing is really affordable. People are very friendly , and will open a.door for you. Almost everything in town is less than a 15 minute commute. Only down fall is not much entertainment for kids. Locals love to dine out, and ask which church you go to which there is several to choose from. Very hot summers here over 100 and not almost no snow in winter or if it does less than 3 inches. I'm suprised that not more big business dont invest here because land is affordable
