Many people consider Temple a small town, but a great expansion of businesses coupled with extensive population growth has established much more of an city vibe in the area. Residents here enjoy quiet neighborhoods, many of them gated communities, while still enjoying affordable housing costs. An extensive medical community finds home here thanks to Scott and White Memorial Hospital, ranked as one of the top 100 hospitals in the U.S. While a number of residents have lived in the area for long periods of time, the city draws others relocating from Austin or soldiers who work at Ft. Hood, the large army base just a 30-minute drive away. With its central Texas location in close proximity to large cities, the area consistently grows as more businesses establish themselves here.

History

Born a railroad town in 1882, Temple even received its name from a Santa Fe Railroad official, Bernard Moore Temple. The Temple Railroad and Heritage Museum teaches about the city’s roots, with the entire upstairs dedicated to the railroad. Population here expanded greatly in the early 2000s, with many relocating from the larger Texas cities and bringing new businesses with them. A wide range of artistic venues exist in Temple and the arts scene constantly expands. The Azalee Marshell Cultural Activity Center houses five art galleries, each displaying a new exhibit every six weeks. Annual events held by the city here include sporting events, such as the Hot 2 Trot 5k race. The Temple Model Train show provides fun for all ages with a number of exhibits and activities.

Traveling by car remains the most popular method for getting around in Temple. Interstate 35 runs through the city, providing the main venue for navigating throughout the neighborhood or to an outside city. Residents can choose to walk to their destination, and if they live close to South 31st St, every shop they need can be visited on foot. Cyclists in the area remain a minority with few bicycle lanes on the streets, though traveling by bicycle has been gaining popularity. For traveling long distances without a car, patrons utilize the Amtrack station located in downtown Temple and take the train to such cities as Waco or Austin while saving money. The HOP bus system provides easily affordable public transportation with stations throughout the city in its most popular areas. Hailing a cab proves difficult, but you can arrange a pickup by phone or online. However, Uber doesn't service this area. The majority of businesses in the area provide free parking for visitors.

Apartment complexes throughout the city feature average rents for one bedrooms around $643. Fueling up your car still saves money, with fuel prices averaging about 6.43 percent below the national rate. Getting to the city center by bus takes no more than $5 from your wallet, and ordering a beer in a bar adds about $3 to your bill.

Stores can be found all over the city, with many shopping centers located just off of the interstate. Many big-box retailers provide cost-effective products for consumers and many other local boutiques also proffer high-value items.
