    I’ve passed through several times driving. Not a bad town from what I’ve seen. Don’t expect to be able to do anything after 9/10pm as pretty much nothing is open except Waffle House. & if you plan to be driving, no more than 5 over the posted speeds, unless you like collecting tickets...

    condolences.....
    "only two things come form Texarkana....." wasn't that a line in the film "smoky and the bandit?"

    I spent a whole lot of time there and remember soem fun places to eat and go, but that was back in the mid to late 1990's...so I'm of no help
    my memories were that the TX side was dry...but a private club could sell...so places like applebees would sell memberships. I just thought that was funny....

    LOL no. It was Texas and Full Metal Jacket.

    Texarkana is where they picked up the Coors in Smokey And The Bandit.

    Rosanna's down in Texarkana
    Wanted me to push her broom...
    Sweet Eileen's in Abilene
    She forgot I hung the moon...


    And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee!

    .......

    Seriously, it’s not a bad place, but there’s not a whole lot to do there from what I recall.

    You know why Texas doesn't slip and just slide right into the Gulf of Mexico?


    Because, Arkansas, New Mexico and Oklahoma SUCK:p
