Sherman is OK but not really a totally safe place to live. The people are not that friendly, lots of druggies that will break into your house and car. The police are rather useless. On the other hand medical and dental facilities are abundant and adequate, shopping is also adequate. Not too much to do here but Dallas in only an hour away. Because of the crime rate and overall shabbiness of the area, I would not recommend Sherman as a nice place to live.
