Setting & Lifestyle

It is a fairly quiet city because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Balmorhea has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy.
