Are there any mamas here from Alpine, Texas? If so, what's it like? How's the culture, education, AP community, etc?
Thanks!

Just thought I'd respond since no one else had. Alpine is kinda a neat little college town in the middle of nowhere in a desert. Last time I visited was several years ago (before I had kids, so at least four) and it was very small. It is home to Sul Ross University. A school I once considered going to. There is a large Hispanic population, and a large seasonal population of college aged kids. There wasn't much in the way of fast food last I visited (there was a Sonic, but don't remember much else), or night life. But the town was also in the middle of a big construction boom, so I have no idea what is there now. It is def. a neat little place. Close enough to Big Bend National Park you can take weekend camping trips there. Its pretty close to the border with Mexico, but still a few hours away (I think...). Thats about all I remember from my time spent there. I didn't have kids when I used to visit, so not sure if there are many AP parents there or not. I don't remember seeing lots of young families there though...
