I recently saw a job opening in Three Rivers, but know nothing about it except I have heard that it is humid and there are bugs, are those two things real that bad? What is it like? Is there much to do? Is it heavily religious, would one who is not Christian be alright? Is there crime? Are there rentals? I can't seem to find any on Craigslist. Does any one have any pictures? Is it a good place to raise a kid? When googling it I keep seeing things about hunting, would a vegetarian go hungry? It's Texas, so I guessing it's conservative, but how much? Is it open to different races and gays? Thanks for any insight! I really appreciate it!

It's basically a small Texas town that in addition to Valero, boasts a federal prison camp. One probably doesn't need to be religious to fit in, but in general, I doubt if a gay vegetarian would be very happy there. There's certainly not much to do if you're not interested in hunting or fishing. And yes, it will be hot, humid and buggy. That's South Texas in general.

Yep, Three Rivers is just a wide place in a not very busy road with a population of about 2,000 ppl. The best that can be said for it is that it's a short drive to San Antonio. Hot and humid will be the norm, but in south TX we think of the bugs as part of the wildlife, I'd be more concerned with the snake and alligator population around the lake.

Well I'm conflicted. I went from thinking "thats sounds nice" to "eek god" in just three short posts. Bug's as part of wildlife? No no no. I currently battle flying roaches and even though they are the norm, they are still the enemy. Alligators? So does that mean that one can not go in the lake? I am definitely ANTI-hunting and fishing, but I'm not preachy, too each his own. How are the winters, does humid mean there is a lot of rain, any electrical storms? Anyone know if there are many rentals?

winters are mild in south texas, some rain. you could always live in Mathis, its between Corpus and 3 rivers. I have not heard of anyone being injured by a gator, but enter at your own risk.

I have not heard of 'gators in Lake CC either, however on a recent trip to Choke Canyon, (Three Rivers), I was told by the park rangers not to let my labrador pup fetch sticks thrown into the water as she might end up being dinner for the resident gators. So, according to the people who manage the lake, there are some uglies living there.

We also have the occasional gator spotted in our canals in the outlaying communities, there is a photo hanging on the wall at the Oxy Cemical plant at Ingleside of a 10 footer lounging in a canal ditch just waiting for something tasty to wander within reach. I personally observed a 6 footer casually cruising the beach at Port Lavaca a couple of years ago.

So,,, poo-poo the idea of some nasties living within our community if you insist, but I know for certain they are there.

I own some acreage on the north part of Lake Corpus Christi- 1.4 miles west of the I-37 Swinney Switch Exit. Its a nice area and less humid than the coast. People are friendly and Live Oak County has the nicest fairest attitude about property taxes that I've seen in Texas. George West has a good school district- not sure about Three Rivers. Its a friendly and safe area. Lots of wildlife. Let me know if you go there.
