Longview is a small town that gives you the resources to explore and be entertained. As a local, Longview has transformed from the mindset of "having nothing to do" to an excited day running around having fun with new resturantes, shopping areas, parks, and entertainment based attractions. I am not saying that Longview is by any means bustling like Dallas but it is a professional enviornment for a great childhood. Not only is Longview one of the fastest growing towns in the country, it is full of community based activities to get involved and make a difference!

Longview is a great, up-and-coming town nestled in the Piney Woods of East Texas. The community here is like no other! No matter where you go (grocery store, restaurant, gym, etc.) you will see someone you know, who will smile and ask about your well-being! Longview's downtown is developing into a thriving cultural and entertaining area. With all the growth going on in Longview, I am excited to come back a visit and see just what it has become!
Longview is a fast growing town! I was born and raised in Longview but recently moved to a smaller town outside of Longview. It offers a variety of good restaurants but if you want more shopping or entertainment options it is best to go to Tyler, TX which is about 45 minutes away.
