There are a lot of beautiful homes and parks to check out. The town is also conveniently close to must see state parks such as Beavers Bend, the Ouachita National Forest, and the Cossatot River Park. The down side of this town is the unfriendliness of the locals and the lack of diversity in stores and restaurants. There is not much culture here and it's downtown supports this. I recommend a revitalization of the downtown area. It could be a good attempt at revitalizing the area.

This is a small city next to downtown Texarkana. It is a quite boring neighborhood with almost no activities at night. The only good thing about living this city is very cheap living expenses, but at a cost of having difficulty to find a decent job with a decent wage.
Local businesses in town are very tidy and have an overall welcoming atmosphere. Even though I work for one, it makes me more aware of the others in the area because of how well the company is I work for. Top of the line only!
