Corsicana is a small town of 25,000 people. It can seem small to some folks but to others it can seem decent size depending on where you are from. This is a tight knit community where everyone knows who everyone is and is always willing to help. The night life is pretty bad so it really isn't for young people that want to have a good time. I am 27 years old so I usually have to go to Dallas/Fort Worth to go hangout with friends. It's also pretty quiet so that is a plus, but the one thing that I would change here are the roads! They are horrible! They are constantly "fixing" them but they leave them in terrible shape for months at a time. I've gone through 2 tires in a 6 month time period because either the construction trucks will leave nails behind or because there is no level section on the road. Come at your own risk, but do take into consideration my comments about Corsicana.

When poeple visit Downtown overall their experiences are very contemplative. The overall shops to furniture, antiques, clothes etc. are nice quality things are hold value very well. Corsicana, TX was built and started from drilling from oil. Being almost directly in between Dallas and Houston, we see alot of tourist of a older generation pass through. As for the younger generations kids we have quite a few nice parks for children along with a newly built movie theater complete with an arcade and go-cart track. Just outside of Corsicana is the third biggest Texas Lake Richland Chambers in which have some very very nice houses with lake side properties. A perfect town to grow old and move on the water with a wife and just your Lab!
Although I have grown up in the city of Corsicana, I have encountered several bigoted, close minded people that resemble everything you'd believe the grand state of Texas was. However within my school there are many, many progressive people and faculity alike that are open to conversations on "sensitive topics" such as LBGTQ rights, abortion laws, and BLM.
