Texarkana gets its unusual name from its position on the border between Texas and Arkansas, and is technically a two-state city. This means it gets the best of both worlds, from great festivals and theater to stock car racing and flea markets. Indeed, the largest flea market in the US – held on the first Monday of each month in Canton, Texas – is within day-tripping distance. Closer to home, you’ll find intriguing sights like the Draughon-Moore Ace of Clubs House, built in 1885 using winnings from gambling, or so legend has it. If you’re looking for hotels in Texarkana, Texas, we’ve rounded up the best of the bunch, all bookable with Culture Trip.
