We know why many people find the idea of living in the country pleasant, but what if you could live in the perfect rural destination yet still retain that small city feel? Aside from providing local residents with what they need, one of the distinct advantages of rural lots in Falfurrias is that you’re only an hour drive away from the city.
Whether it’s heading down and visiting friends in the Rio Grande Valley, going out east and enjoying the beaches of Corpus Christi, or enjoying the scenery at the riverwalk up north in San Antonio, you’re only a short drive away from the hustle and bustle of city life and the plethora of businesses and exclusive markets that exist there.
While most people retreat to the suburbs, you need to take your boots off somewhere more majestic. Somewhere where you can breathe the fresh air and sit down for coffee at a quiet diner before you get your workday started. Somewhere not too far from the city while still managing to hold the charm of magnificent rural desolation. That perfect somewhere is Falfurrias, Texas.
Falfurrias: A Small City With Big Aspirations
While most of the urban areas in Texas continue to experience unprecedented growth, Falfurrias has managed to maintain its small-town charm and will continue to do so. And the reason is simple, we’re a ranching and farming community, and we always will be. Sure, many people know our little slice of Texas because of the Border Patrol checkpoint on the outskirts of town or being the perfect rest stop in between destinations, but few people truly know Falfurrias the way locals do.
We have plenty of rural land to tend to and if we don’t get what we need off our land then we can find our other essentials in our local shops or even big grocery chains like H-E-B, too. Santa Cruz Properties knows the ins and outs of Falfurrias because finding the perfect rural lot for you and your family has been our calling card going on for three decades.
And if you’re worried about the cost of living in Falfurrias, don’t worry. Our town has an A rating from areavibes.com with high scores in goods and services, groceries, health care, utilities, and transportation.
When it comes to fun and games, well, we enjoy a fun neighborly get together like everyone else, but with rural living, most people enjoy the simpler things in life. Of course, if we want to visit the city it’s an easy drive, and we do have a couple of spots to mingle in besides the local café.
For any anglers out there, the Laguna Flats Fishing Guide Service isn’t too far away from us and provides great opportunities to help you get that perfect catch. The King Ranch Visitor Center, on the other hand, is located nearby and is a great place for aspiring historians to learn about the biggest ranch in the United States, and if you’re seeking spiritual guidance, then the Don Pedro Jaramillo Shrine is a great place to seek solace. Otherwise, it’s wide open spaces and big blue skies. Just the way we like it.
