Theres absolutely NOTHING to this town. You can rely on the Thump and bbq joints for only so long before you have to do something to give the people to do.

How many times can you cruise "the loop" before you realize how your life sucks because thats all you have to do?

Nothing for the younger crowd so they go to other cities to spend the money. If they stay its to go to some backwoods "party" where they get drunk and get knocked up and or kill time with drugs.

The older crowd just mill into the same busted down looking bars filled with fat white trash women who are in desperate need of a dentist thanks to the white trash rednecks that smack em around.

You cant tell me at some point people in this city just dont look at it and say "god this town sucks".

Been there and Done that. Lived in Luling from 1994 til 2005 and that was enough for me. The schools used to be one of the best in Central Texas but that even went down the toilet. I'm so glad that my husband and I decided to move our kids to Bastrop to go to school, many more opportunities here for them.

I lived in Luling all my life. My dad was born and raised here and he called it the cesspool of the south. Luling is afraid of CHANGE!!! I no longer live here and dont miss it either.

Blame the government. You need to get a progressive mayor and city council. Then you will see some changes.

County seat or not, its insane that Luling is on the interstate, yet Lockhart has all the stuff.

Ill blame the city. Remember when Luling had a shot at the Walmart distribution center? The city said no so it went to New Braunsfels.

Luling just wasnt planned very well. Blame the city leaders that get in position to get a few bucks and bail.

I am sorry Jet, I agree with you. Keep in mind, everyone on this site has a very negative mindset. They are miserable in their own personal lives so love to cut everyone and everything else down.

Can you actually defend your position instead of just cutting people down?
What has the City of Luling done to improve? What have the citizens of Luling done to make an impact in the community?
Your town is on the interstate and is the last bastion of civilization till at least Flatonia. Your people could be making so much money, yet there is NOTHING.
How much longer is Luling going to allow Seguin and Lockhart to make all the money?
So you have a "paddling trail". Honestly who gives a shit if thats ALL you have? If I wanted to bring the family down to see this trail, where would we eat? What suitable hotel is there? Nothing. Id have to take the "real money" to Seguin or Lockhart.

Things are happening in Luling, it might not be what you all want and if you don't see some change then you are looking in the right places. All the organizations are working together to improve the town and things to do but it takes time and you are right about one thing, it takes the right people to do it. Our EDC is working on hotels and places to stop to eat on I10, our Main Street is working on the historical part of Luling and the Chamber is working on getting more business downtown. If all of you would stop bitching and maybe do something about it, you would see the change. My family is from here, I lived here during school moved off and came back. I got involved instead of bad mouthing this town. Now, I will say one thing the school district needs major help but it also is a work in progress.
