Texarkana Reviews

Texarkana has very little to do in the town. The only entertainment worth going to is the waterpark and the movie theater, but there are plenty of restaurants to try out. The location puts it relatively close to Dallas, Shreveport, and Little Rock, so you can drive an hour or two to get to a bigger city to find something to do. The lake is not worth going to, but there are a few lakes in Arkansas that are fairly close for a good lake day. The people are very polite and nice there.

Texarkana is a small and somewhat quiet city. Texarkana needs more restaurant options than McDonald’s, Pizza and Tex-mex. Texarkana also needs more things to do when bored than just the movies, the mall and the couple of bar scenes.
Texarkana is an up and coming town. It continually grows with activities, entertainment and family events. When I left Texarkana hardly none of the businesses that exist today were present before. The culture has changed as well. People are welcoming here and there are some many cultures that have migrated to Texarkana and made it there home. I am impressed at how much it has changed and enjoy being here
