Temple, Texas is a wonderful, welcoming community to be a part of. With over 1200 MDs coming here because of Baylor Scott & White Hospital, we have a growing cultural city that is home to a wonderful school district with a great “Friday Night Light’s”, small-town feel. We have the Cultural Activities Center and the Temple Civic Theatre that are constantly enriching our city with the arts and theatre. With Austin (one hour) and Dallas (one and a half hours) right down the road in each direction, we are close enough to the “big cities” but far enough away to have an inviting environment and a low cost of living.
