Not going to lie to you...

My family moved here 3 years ago from Nebraska for a job, we had high hopes for this place..get out of the cold enjoy the beach and weather, boy were we wrong! Let me just say you cant even visit the beaches because of the fecal matter and risk of dying from a flesh eating bacteria. Gross! You cant even fill up you're car at a pump because someone may scam you. And you cant even go outside during the summer because it is so HOT. I did some research and this place is basically the hottest place in america. Awesome! The nightlife is nonexistent, idk why anyone young would move here. Most people would say I'm being too negative but this is the truth. Also my family used to vacation in southern california and we were extremely excited about living someone with as they call it " authentic mexican food" Give me a break!! Also on a side note ANIMAL CRUELTY is HIGH here and normal to the people that live here and that says alot. I'm sorry this review is so negative but someone had to say something! I think texans tend to turn a blind eye and say there states the best. Well, it's not. And bay shitty is by far the best.
