Texarkana Reviews

77 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 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
Texarkana is a small city ideal for southern living. The crime rate has increased over the years and the night life has little to offer; however, the cost of living is very compatible and everywhere you could possibly want to go has an easy commute. Large companies are also expanding creating more job opportunities.
