There are some poor sections of town where there is a lot of graffiti and garbage on the road. This side of the city does not seem to be kept up very neat.During the trip there wasn't very many police cars out, which tells me this city isn't patrolled very often.Another con of Texarkana, Texas is most gas stations require you to prepay for your gas ahead of time. This makes it hard for the driver in case he wants to fill up all the way he may not know how much gas it will take. This requires you to go in and out of the gas station several times.Many residents get frustrated with this concept and end up paying by credit card.
Texarkana, Texas is known for "Where life is so large it takes two states".It is right on the border of Arkansas and Texas.Texarkana is well worth the drive to visit.Since this city is almost two cities in one it is known for two of everything.There are two libraries, two fire departments, two city governments, two city mayors, etc.
Texarkana, Texas is a wonderful place to visit with beautiful scenery, warm climate and great people.
