These 15 Towns In Texas Have The Best Main Streets You Gotta Visit
Main streets and town squares are becoming less and less prevalent throughout the country, being replaced with identical corporate downtowns that lack character. But the residents of Texas simply won’t stand for that. Our state created the Texas Main Street Cities program that strives to preserve and restore historic downtown districts. We just have too rich of a history to let go to waste, and you’ll get a glimpse of that in this article. Here are 15 adorable little Texas towns with main streets that will warm your heart and take you back to simpler times.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
