Nacogdoches Texas: A Town of Majestic Beauty!

I am a huge fan of living in Nacogdoches, Texas. The quaint college town offers its own majestic beauty. I love that it is not too big, and not too small and is known for its azalea beautiful garden. The weather is always great! It gives me an opportunity to enjoy rustic outdoor activities with loved ones.

Even though the town harbors the Stephen F. Austin State University and thrives with young campus goers, it still gives an organic old-world feel. There are many amenities to choose from, whether it's antiquing or long nature strolls. In addition, Nacogdoches has excellent educational programs, the cost of living is great, and crime is moderate. Employment, however, is well below standards for the state of Texas. The largest employment outlet surrounds its education system.

One of the best areas in Nacogdoches is Lake Nacogdoches East Side Park. This place is gorgeous! It's a three-acre park that has all the bells and whistles. I take pleasure in picnicking, swimming, barbecuing, boating, and bass fishing every opportunity that I get.
