Do you use TripAdvisor.com? I do. Every time I go out of town I am looking on that site to get an inside look at my destination and things to do there. Ever wonder what it says about Texarkana? 

It's good to get a little refresher on some great things to do right here in town. To get a good overall look, I did two separate searches, one for Texarkana, Texas and the other for Texarkana, Ark.

A Step Back in History

This was a fun tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and left no questions unanswered. The home is very unusual and has gone through a lot of changes. It was so interesting to see day to day life back in the early part of the 1900's.

“Delightful Find”
This museum is relatively new. It does not contain any full-size trains but it does contain minature trains and lots of memorobelia from the earily train era in Texarkana.
There are fun things for children to see and do.My grandson especially enjoyed the old train bell that he was allowed to ring.
The docent was delightful and went out of her way to accomodate our mid-week visit. The museum is typicall only open on the weekend but I was able to arrange a visit while we were in town on a Wednesday.
No fee - but donations accepted

“Local Art at its best!”

This place is so underused, it is not even funny! Folks need to come down and discover this place! The building itself it a work of art in its own rite. It houses offices as well as galleries. The exhibits change a little over a month at a time. There are many things to do as well as view the art, you just have to know when the things are offered. The Melvarue Abraham exhibit was great.

Family members attended between 14 to 50, we all found fun in the water. Not too crowded and a welcome break from the heat. Plenty of age appropriate activities. Life guards were alert and paid attention to safety issues.

I was quite impressed to see a children's theatre in a small town like Texarkana that rivals Dallas Children's theatre. What a little gem Texarkana has!
