Texarkana, Texas Read Guide >
It may seem strange at first, but you’ll get used to the bifurcation of your city. The creatively named State Line Avenue runs north and south along (duh!) the state line. Crossing this street, you’ll see little difference between the two cities, at first. But, the Texas side of Texarkana has one notably different quality: it’s in dry Bowie County. So on the east side of State Line Avenue you’ll see a lot of liquor stores, and on the west side… a lot of churches.
Speaking of churches, in addition to being a dry city, Texarkana is also home to the headquarters of the American Baptist Association. So religious conservatism is pretty much the dominant mood throughout town. This means that there are many fun and family-friendly activities organized by churches and community groups, but little in the way of nightlife unless you cross over into Arkansas.
Texarkana’s city center is centrally located on the state border. Like many small metropolitan areas, the urban neighborhoods located close to the city center have suffered some blight over the years. Unfortunately, many of the neighborhoods encircling downtown Texarkana are plagued by crime. It’s best to avoid these areas when looking for apartments for rent.
Lucky for you, Texarkana suburbs have seen a lot of great development and continue to be safe, affordable and desirable alternatives to downtown. In particular, the northern region of town, near the community of Red Lick, has some of the best and widest variety of apartment rentals in Texarkana. New apartment and condominium complexes, as well as duplexes and rental homes are available in this region. Galloping Way, one of the northern neighborhood’s main drags, has a lot of great, affordable developments with tons of amenities including pools, gyms and clubhouses. These developments also occasionally have studio apartments and furnished apartments for rent. Two bedrooms here generally range from $650 to $900.
Just south and west of Red Lick, you’ll also be able to locate some great rentals around the Wake Village and Nash communities. Here, there’ll be lots of cheap apartments in slightly older developments that are just as safe as apartment rentals to the north. Two bedrooms in this area generally range from $550 to $800.
Locating a pet friendly rental will be fairly easy in Texarkana. Pet friendly apartments are numerous and have very few limitations on the size or number of animals. Your dog will also enjoy the plethora of outdoor activities just outside the city limits.
So, welcome to Texarkana! Enjoy both sides of the state line and happy hunting!
