1 Votes - "Most Patriotic"


The oldest town in Texas lives by the mantra “Keep Nacogdoches Friendly,” with businesses embracing hospitality training to become Texas Certified Friendly even. The community is so small the mayor is also the local dentist, and everyone’s approachable.

Visitors can explore Millard’s Crossing historic village, Lake Nacogdoches, or Lanana Creek Trail. Most notably, Nacogdoches is home to Stephen F. Austin State University and serves as a warm welcome for students away from home.

Local favorites include the Saturday farmer’s market and The Blueberry Place, where you can pick your own blueberries right off the vine and leave payment in a basket on the honor system. Visitors are encouraged to experience historic local bed and breakfasts, stroll the nature trails, and browse antiques while in town.

It's by far the friendliest town in Texas!!!

Nacogdoches has been my home for just over a year and the people here are wonderful. I've been accepted with open arms and it you have a question, someone always has an answer ready to help you out. This town is gorgeous and steeped in rich history. The folks in Nacogdoches really know how to welcome you in and make you want to stay!

It is a beautiful town with friendly, caring people and lots of historical sites. It is just the right size....not too large but with a beautiful State University as an added plus! I love Nacogdoches because it is a great place to live and work.
