    Our area is outside Galveston. Summer time is the best in Galveston. This town has a bad reputation from back in the early 1900's as being a lower income community. This was an area that many criminal factors lived. They didn't commit crimes here but hid here. Now those elements are almost gone and in the process criminals moved into the area that would commit crime in the area that they lived. This was one reason the previous criminal element left, at least those that were not arrested,prosecuted and sent to prisons. ( mostly federal).

    Those of us that are looking for entertainment and fun will go to Galveston, Dickinson, Clear Lake, Houston. We are a center point for all of these.

    There's is alot of crime going on vibrantly around here, especially involving drugs. The police are always quick to respond.

    Most of the transportation in the community area is via, bicycle, car, gulf carts. There is one public transportation bus that does pick up in several locations and will take you to several areas. This has helped with employment and getting around for those that do not drive.
