Adorably small town. Close tight-knit community. Great place to raise a family and close enough to the big cities to commute!

Van Alstyne is a growing Texoma small town. Not a whole lot of choices to dine, but hopefully that will change in the near future with growth.
My experience in this town has been a very good one. I have enjoyed living here. I live down the street from the College, and this is the main reason why I moved here. The stores are very friendly, and so is the community.
