Rumor has it that the post office in downtown Texarkana is the second most photographed post office in the country. That’s a pretty bold claim, but whether it’s true or not, you’ll still want to stop by, take a look and snap a few shots yourself. It’s one of those quirky and cool places you’ll find all over rural America, where you can actually stand in two states at one time, which begs the question: if you committed a crime that way, who’d have jurisdiction? You won’t need to spend much time here to get the full effect.

Ahhhh, coffee. It’s one of my favorite things. And if you are looking for Coffee with a Mission, Brewster’s is serving coffee AND the community. One of the main goals of BB’s is to be able to provide artisan coffee to locals, but also to provide a safe place for people to build relationships, listen to live music, and grab a quick bite. As the Texas weather begins to give way to fall, make Brewster’s on the Boulevard your go to place for the warmth you desire. After you coffee- up, follow Texas BLVD to West 40th street, turn right and then follow your navigation up to Spring Lake Park.

Spring Lake Park is the heart and pride of the Texarkana, Texas park system. This 145-acre park features a spring fed lake, open green spaces with picnic areas, playground units, fishing piers and an 18 hole disc golf course. The 1.75 mile Phillip McDougal Walking/Biking Trail strolls throughout the entire park and is a favorite spot for the recreational or avid jogger. Spring Lake Park is also where you will hear the "crack of the bat” at the Swanger Sports Complex, home of the Texarkana, Texas Dixie Baseball League and Dobson Field, home of the Texas A&M-Texarkana Eagles Baseball team. We have two new additions to the park: The Rotary Splash Pad, where cool, wet fun is a much needed break in the hot summer days and the Kylee Sullivan-PetSafe Dog Park, for our canine companions to enjoy the great outdoors in a safe, secure location. The park is an ideal place to spend a Spring and Fall evening watching Movies in the Park offering new and classic releases. Bring your blanket, snacks, lawn chairs and settle in for an evening of entertainment. The park is located at 4303 North Park Road, between 40th Street and Interstate 30.

Ready to drive around one of the best parks in town? Great! Take the next exit to get to Bobby Ferguson Park. Turn right on Four States Fair Parkway and then left on East 50th Street so we can drive completely around the park. It will be on your left. With 2 playgrounds, 2 jogging trails, water access, a fishing pier, 19 picnic tables, 2 pavilions and 2 restrooms, this park is a gem. I’m thinking you will agree with me as you drive around it. Also, on the south side of 50th street you will find the Four States Fair and Rodeo grounds. From barrel racing to cattle roping to horse shows, motor sports, community events and expos, these fair grounds see a lot of action! Of course the yearly State Fair is NOT to be missed. It’s an event that is talked about all year long here in Texarkana. Visit fourstatesfair.com for more info.
