Unique Small Town of Fresno

I've been living in Fresno Texas for three years and find it to be a unique charming small town on the suburb of Houston and provides all the conveniences to raise a family in a safe respectable community. Fresno has great schools including the Hightower High School that is one of the better schools in this district. My kids love going to school here and have found lifelong friendships that they probably will have for their whole lives. The community is very close and it seems like you know everyone in town or everyone knows you.

All of the shops, recreation, and other conveniences that are found in major metropolitan areas can be found here for the most part. One of the best areas in Fresno is around the Mustang Community Center. The Mustang Community Center is one of the focal points of the community where all of the families play their little league games there is also meeting rooms and other pavilions for families to have parties and other get-togethers to enjoy. Fresno is a city that has great weather and will be a great place to raise your family if you're looking to relocate to the Houston Metro area.
