Pottsboro is a nice community, but the city doesn't have much for youth to keep them active. The best thing about Pottsboro is the Public Library--very community friendly!!

I have lived in Pottsboro all my life and was very satisfied with the community, I hope someday when I start a family I am able to come back and show them where I grew up, and spent all my teenage years. To be honest I do not know of anything that I would change about the town of Pottsboro, it is absolutely amazing just the way it is. The small community in the middle of no where is a fantastic place that I call home.
Pottsboro is perfect for me because its a small town and everything is so simple. I love that it's by the lake and it's absolutely beautiful.The scools are small but very distinguished. Most of my family lives here and many of them have lived here their whole lives as well. I want to stay in Pottsboro the rest of my life and I wish for my kids to go to school here.
