I absolutely love the simple life that I am living in Santa Fe, Texas. Santa Fe is a small town and has a population of less than 13,000. When you take a drive, or walk down the streets of the local neighborhoods, everyone waves or wants to stop and talk.
The best areas in Santa Fe, Texas are in fact the local rural areas in which you can just sit in the peace and quiet and reflect on life. This area has mature trees, large open fields, and provides an atmosphere like no other place I have ever been to. This is not a place in which the hustle and bustle will drive you crazy.
The downside of living here is of course that the only thing you will find are the basics. In order to really do some serious shopping or recreation, you will have to travel to a neighboring town or city, but in my opinion that trip is worth it if the place that you call home is as peaceful as Santa Fe, Texas.
