I've lived all my life in San Juan, it is a nice neighborhood. I love the area, as it is full of my Hispanic culture. The food is by far the best, I will never get tired of the amazing tacos. There are a good amount of Mexican restaurants, that make amazing food, without having to make the drive to Mexico to enjoy some food from our culture. Immigrants get the opportunity to make themselves better, and supply a good future to their children. People are provided with an amazing education program, that allows kids to graduate with an associates with no charge. The only thing I would like to see change is , for there to be more fun activities for families to take advantage of, as its currently lacking it.

An affordable place to live in, but there really isn't much growth in this town. Everybody knows everybody here, word gets in the street fast especially because everyone went to the same high school. This place can use a good city planner/designer because everything here is out of date. A bit over crowded, too many school... They should invest in making more public parks, more activities to do like lazer tag, a theater, skating rink, bowling place, a public auditorium, 3 story rock wall climb building, upgrade their coffee shops, make this place more classier. It be nice to see a city in the RGV to be eco friendly, having those awareness going on, and embracing their culture.
San Juan, TX is such a small town, that everyone I know outside this small "bubble" has to look it up to see where it is. It's pretty lonely here. I wish there was more life. The only people that walk here are people that are either crazy, or their vehicle. I know I might just be talking about the negatives of my hometown and you might think "then, what's so good about it?"

Family. Everyone around here cares about their family so much; also so many gatherings. Neighbors will come over a few times a week. The population is about 90% Hispanic, and mostly everyone is either a first or second generation Mexican American. I wish there was more deversity, it would help people out of their comfort zone. Also, we only have one bus that travels within a few cities, but it just goes from a college (a different town), to a store, to a church. I wish there were more stops.
