Why the Texas Panhandle is a great place to live!

May 22, 2017

Canyon Texas was named in the top 10 best small towns to live in according to livability.com.

Canyon, Tx acts as the gateway to one of the most popular tourist attractions in the state – Palo Duro Canyon State Park. While at the Canyon, be sure to check out the TEXAS Outdoor Musical for a family friendly show about the struggles and triumphs of the settlers in the Texas Panhandle. In addition to all that the area has to offer to outdoors enthusiast, Canyon also offers great schools, affordable and diverse housing options, and access to West Texas A&M University and all its cultural and educational amenities, making this Texas Panhandle town one of the 10 Best Small Towns.

 

Cambree Haseloff (Farwell, TX) – “It's a great place to live because of agriculture, the people of agriculture, and simply those who contribute to agriculture. The area is full of hard working people that dedicate their lives to bettering and providing for not only the Panhandle but our country as a whole. Whether we know each other or not, we are all one big happy Panhandle family that is willing to lend a hand to those that need it and sacrifice for those we love and things that are dear to us. The area isn't always green. There is a lot of dirt and wild grass, but people of the Texas Panhandle find beauty in that. Beauty to us is fields of corn, cotton, cattle, and sprinklers. Everywhere we look, there is agriculture. That is what makes me proud to call the Texas Panhandle my home.”

 

 
 

Dylon Swim (Canyon, TX) - “Living in the West TexasPanhandle is great because everyone helps each other no matter who they are. I lived in the panhandle for 21 years and plan to move back for the fact that there are friendly people within the community. When disaster strikes, everyone helps out no questions asked.”

 

Blake Schulte (Wildorado, TX) – “Growing up in a small town in Texas has been like heaven on earth. I have never lived anywhere else so I can't actually say it's "the place to be", but it has always been good for me. Growing up in a small town, you tend to know everyone.  Everyone usually gets along and comes together like a great big family (can't be that big if you live in a town with less than 1000 people). You are also taught right from wrong and the hard work of other people usually rubs off on you at a young age which gives you something to live up to. In a small town in Texas, there are basically 2 seasons whether your family farms or not: planting season and harvesting season. Everyone around here gets used to the farming community and respects it and tries to help in any way they can. I have worked for a farmer for almost a year, and I have had days where I come home, take my shoes off, and completely crash on the couch. However, I have also had moments when I am conversing with my coworkers and we laugh until we cry. Working for a farmer in the Texas panhandle has taught me to have respect for other farmers, have respect for the land we plant into, and have respect and be grateful to God for all the blessings we receive on and off the farm. So out of all the reasons I love Texas, the most important thing is that Texas is my home, and home is where the heart is. ”
