Review of Abilene, Texas


Abilene, A Family Friendly Christian City
Star Rating - 5/20/2020
I've lived in Abilene for the last 45 years and It's the best place to raise a family. Great churches, schools, jobs and sense of community. There is always something "family" to do here. While I hear some complain that there's nothing to do it's because we don't have a ton of huge bars and/or night clubs nor big concerts on a regular basis. We have great museums, parks, a zoo, a couple public pools and a few small lakes for fishing. Plenty of "wholesome" family friendly activities plus plenty of Downtown nightlife places for the grownups. God lives here.

Hi Rudy. My adult son will be moving to your Abilene, a work transfer. I have alot about Abilene and wonder if you can offer so e suggestions. He doesn't know anyone in Abilene yet so can you recommend a nice safe area if the city for him to live? He will be renting and working on the side of town where the zoo is. He doesn't need to live in that area though. Can you recommend a safe area or recommend a section of town to avoid? Thanks do much.
