Schertz: Spanish Suprises

I have always loved Texas even as a kid. The days I spent there really helped mold me into the person I am today. The many cities had different cultures and one of my favorites is Schertz.

Schertz, Texas is small but has a lot of great qualities to me. It has a lot of Spanish influence and it really allowed my family to do things we’ve never done. The selection of food here is wonderful and the Mexican flavors are some of the best and authentic in the whole U.S.

The attractions in this city are more old fashion. One time we went horseback riding and surprisingly it was a great experience. The people were nice and taught us a lot about their Spanish culture I really liked the people and it was really a highlight of the area. The markets contain many different unique items that van be bought anymore. As far as stores go they have most of the essential but the local stores seem to be the best to me.
