10 Small Towns In Texas That Offer Nothing But Peace And Quiet
Close your eyes and picture the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words “small town.” You probably saw a town square with lots of little shops like a general store, soda fountain, and maybe an antique store. Most likely, you also thought about the friendly locals who seem to get more and more hospitable the smaller the town is. These would all be correct visualizations – especially here in Texas. All of us natives know that the towns that truly represent what we stand for as a state usually don’t have more than about 10,000 people. If you don’t believe me, visit one (or more) of the following 10 places and see for yourself just how nice the residents are and how slow-paced the living is.
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/
