Saginaw, TX Will Put A Smile On Your Face!

Saginaw, Texas is one of those places that people don't think really exist anymore. Great neighborhoods where the people actually look out for one another and take pride in their homes, and where the crime rate is practically nonexistent. Living in Saginaw is great for us because it's an easy drive to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and there is so much great stuff to do there! The Fort Worth Zoo is always a fun place to visit with more than 7,000 animals to see. One of my personal favorite attractions is the Fort Worth Ghost Bus Tour, a 2-hour bus tour around the city and surrounding areas featuring some reportedly haunted locations, some of which you can visit on your own after the tour!

The weather here in Saginaw is pretty great year round. It can get pretty warm in the summertime, but that' sjust a good excuse to head out to Burger's Lake for some swimming and picnicking! Saginaw is one of the best areas in Texas to call home!
