So I am a business professional and just got this job offer for a company in El Dorado and I will be relocating within the next month. I am from Houston and have never been to El Dorado before so I have no idea which neighborhoods are safe and nice, and which ones should I keep out from. I am looking to rent a 2BR apartment. It would be a huge help if people here could please advice me on potential properties I should be looking at and some reliable landlords I could speak with

Thanks,
A

I have lived here for the past three years after being gone for 10 years. I have spent the last three years trying to be optimistic about Eldo and the attempts of several business owners only to see so many come and go. There is nothing for the youth to do here or the adults. Trying to find items needed for projects or jobs is almost impossible and usually requires a trip out of town. The hospital along with the majority of the eating establishments have a common them set to rude employees and no customer service. It's amazing the difference whenever you go out of town for either. Yes there are lots of good people in Eldo and a few good businesses but they often get overlooked by the abundance of negativity of others. I'm happy for you and your family that you have been offered a job I only wish that you had a better environment to bring them with more opportunities. The best opportunity for the high school graduates is the Eldo Promise that allows the kids an education so that they may seek a better place to raise a family. Not bitter about where I live but I'd like someone to be honest with me if I asked. Good luck.

The only negativity starts here. You are wrong. There is plenty of things in and around El Dorado for adults and youth to get active in. However, you'd rather complain than tale part in the interest of others or create a venue that'd be successful (in your opinion). Most people appreciate the wonderful town that is El Dorado, but we do have our few bad apples. If you can't be happy here, you can't be happy anywhere.

The best advice I can give you is to disregard all Topix posts except for this one. Find another source for reliable info.

Well, since you DID raise the claim. List the things to do.

If you want the truth about El Dorado, just look up the info online. Our town is PRIMARILY BLACK. People can argue all day long that this isn't a ghetto town, but the demographic facts say otherwise. El Dorado IS very much a ghetto welfare town. And everything from restaurants to activities suffer because of it. You will be shocked at the low quality of just about everything here, minus a few decent restaurants.

Sure, there are some good people here. There are good people everywhere. But you will find it hard to find good company because most people around here are uneducated and a little on the trashy side. A good kid of trashy, but still trashy. Think "Jersey Shore" meets "Honey Boo Boo".

There is very little shopping offered here. If you like to dress nice, you have to order online or drive two hours to Little Rock or Shreveport. Same goes for food. If you enjoy a healthy lifestyle you won't find what you need here. We have one shop that offers healthy, organic options but they're very limited.

I have no doubt you will find yourself driving at least 1 1/2 to 2 hrs just to do adequate shopping. Before internet shopping became available, that was our only option.

This area is also highly corrupt. We have a handful of extremely wealthy individuals in this town that control everything, especially local politics. We are a town of 20,000 people and both former presidents Bush and Clinton have been here, one during campaign and the other for a speech at a local high school. This might sound like a good think, but when you take into account what a small minority town we are, it raises a lot of questions.

Many people like it here. And trust me, its purely because they don't know any better. They've only lived here or in other areas just like here, or they have family here so they make excuses for the town they refuse to leave.

Coming from a large city like Houston, you will see for yourself the decrepitness of this piss poor little ghetto town.

Sure, we have many nice neighborhoods, most of which back up to a ghetto. There are ghettos all over the place.

You'll see for yourself.

Here is a link to one of the threads that pretty much sums up this town.

If you look at the thread a few posters point out several legitimate problems with this town, such as the fact that its crime rate is over TWICE the national average. Facts like these are readily available to anyone willing to look. We're also a mega drug town.

Best thing you could do is beg not to be relocated, or come here, make the best of it, then get the hell out asap.

BTW, people here love to gossip and talk shit about everyone. Its part of the small town way. Just look all over this shit site and you'll see it for yourself.
