We were very impressed with the quiet beauty of this historic town in North East Texas! We weren't there very long, only 1 day, but it was a great looking town. Enjoyed eating at Schlotsky's, a favorite of ours here in Austin, Tx! The late nite entertainment spots that it lacks, may contribute to the calm, quiet feel there, which is great in our opinion! Where more bars are located, more crime is happening, that's just a fact. Festivals and family-oriented celebrations are more the style for folks who love a small town feel- that would be us!

I have lived in Marshall for 18 years and I can proudly say it has been a wonderful environment to grow up in! It is a small town , but the town has much to offer! Marshall has several restaurants ranging from cheap to high end. There are also several boutiques and a wide variety of local antique stores to shop at! Plus every year Marshall host the Wonderland of Lights. Downtown is decorated in beautiful lights, an ice skating rink, and activities for young children are just a few of the wonderful experiences held at the Wonderland of Lights. I would definitely recommend visiting Marshall if you love a small town Hallmark feel!
Marshall is a sketchy place sometimes, but let me tell you, there are some very kind and sweet people here. There is work to be done to rebuild certain aspects of this town for sure, but I have made it my own and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The East Texas Flower Truck, Joe Pines, downtown at Christmas time (ice skating and sleigh rides!) and just exploring little locals shops and restaurants has been so much fun. Worth the visit- and the people here make it fun!
