In the middle of nowhere. Skydiving center is cool though. Has a good convenience store for the basic necessities; and dairy queen is always good option for fast food. The loft is an amazing option as well offering burgers, drinks, and their infamous pizza (also a skydive themed restaurant).

Coming from Austin, Texas to the small town of Whitewright was a huge culture shock. There is both pros and cons. I miss the entertainment in Austin, but I love the big family feel in Whitewright. Not to mention the backroads are sooo much better than getting stuck in the traffic!
Whitewright is a great town, however people here are fairly nosy and dramatic. The EMT service is fantastic here. The best thing about this place would have to be the competitiveness of the Whitewright High school athletics team. Especially the Football team.
