The best thing about Kilgore is the cost of living. It is very reasonable to live here and the homes are a nice size. The summers can be brutal, but the winters are mild. It is easy to find a job in the surrounding areas but Kilgore does not have any high paying jobs so most people travel outside of the area.

Kilgore provides a lot of amenities including Walmart, coffee shops, restaurants and more. One of my favorite place to take my family is the Health Science Center and Shakespeare Garden. My family and I love nature and science so we usually spend a lot of time here.

The neighborhoods are very clean and most people take pride in the way their home looks. My neighbors are very friendly and we all look out for one another. There are a few things that I wish we had in Kilgore including malls and better places to shop. I have to travel to Tyler or shop online.
