The city of Orange, Texas is situated in the Port Arthur metropolitan area.
Most areas in Orange are reasonably quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamor - although that is not the case close to the airport (Orange County Airport), one of the railway lines or Interstate 10.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of Orange is an important part of its character. The median year of construction for properties in this part of the Port Arthur metropolitan area is 1976. This city also has a good choice of housing sizes - homes range from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About 60% of the population of this city own their home and 40% are renters.
There are only a few high schools and primary schools in Orange and thus they can be a rather long walk away. Along with public schools, there are private elementary and high schools. When it comes to food, a fraction of property owners in Orange may be able to purchase their groceries on foot in one of about 10 stores, while others will have to use a vehicle. There are also a few choices for those who value nearby restaurants and cafes.
The preferred approach to get around in this part of the Port Arthur metropolitan area is very often a car. It is especially convenient to come across a place to park, and nearby highways, such as Interstate 10, are quite easy to drive to from anywhere in Orange. On the other hand, walking is not very practical for residents in Orange because very few daily needs can be carried out on foot.
