Venus is a very small town with one traffic light. If you prefer quiet country living this is definitely the place, however, if you prefer the busy city life then pass this town up (you probably won't even realize you've gone through it). Some things Venus could use is better fast food options; there is a Sonic, Subway, and a Whataburger, that's it. I enjoy how close it is to the larger cities (Arlington, Fort Worth, Dallas) but I do not have to deal with the craziness that goes on in the city.

Overall, the town is nice. More business is coming, which means more jobs and more to go, see, and do. Diverse, family friendly, nice small town.
The town was peaceful and quiet with potential to grow. It should be more advance but the local city council has denied major businesses to the area and has catered to those who that are of consequence to themselves. I would love to see others allowed to come and make the city grow.
