Longview is full of friendly folks and is a small city that is very BIG ON SERVICE! That's the nature of Real East Texas.
Take a deeper look at Longview and you'll discover that we're more than piney woods. Drop by for a visit and you find friendly folks who'll help you connect to fun and relaxation. Sure we have pines, but our oaks, maples, sweet gum, honey locust and red cedar provide a beautiful springtime through summer and can blaze with fall color well into November some years.
Our rolling hills are a favorite for travelers of all kinds, whether they ride two, three or four wheels, on the road or off.
Festivals are a favorite attraction for Longview with the Boat & RV Show kicking off the year each January. Longview is home to arts activities throughout the year including professional symphony, community band, historical museum, and fine arts museum. Longview is proud to be home to the the Fourth of July Fireworks and Freedom Celebration and the Great Texas Balloon Race. Other special events include Freeze Your Fanny bike ride, the Longview Kennel Club's annual AKC Dog Show, Cinco de Mayo, and Zonta Antique Show and Sale.
