I really like the town of Stephenville, Texas. If you adapt and are more comfortable in small towns, then Stephenville is just right for you! You definitely feel that small town atmosphere! Also, what I really like about this town is since this town is fairly small, everything from restaurants to businesses to grocery stores are relatively close to each other! There is also a University, Tarleton State University here, with a also a community college, Ranger College, as it is called, as well as a high school and jr high school and a few elementary schools. You can also find a church easily, and I really enjoy the town park beside the Bosque river where you could relax, go fishing, or take a nice little jog! Stephenville is most definitely the place to live for small town lovers!

I have lived here my whole life and have really enjoyed it. The people are great and the town doesn't feel too big. The worst thing about Stephenville, is that there are not really any sidewalks. Most of the sidewalks we have are overgrown or in really bad shape. I would love to have a way to bike to my university everyday instead of drive but there are no good sidewalks or bike lanes. Other than that I love Stephenville and the community here. They have big community shows at the park and on 4th of July, and the parades are also always really well done. It really is a great town if you enjoy the country but also enjoy the ease of living in a town.
I absolutely love it! Great small college town, that offers great opportunities to those who live here. Friendly people, real quiet during summers and picks up during the school year. Rodeo community, eat, live and breathe it down here!
