Texarkana is where I was raised since a child on moving in here. I believe Texarkana, Texas has it's own way of indefinite values to the public as well as the environment within. Everyone has their own way of living and beliefs. It kind of is low in average far as ratings because there are only a selected few of growing minds lurking in this city and the city itself selects what they believe are potential over others based on their own personal beliefs over all.

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.
