What it's Like to Live in Longview, Texas: 

Nestled in the Pineywoods of East Texas, Longview is a place that prides itself on providing the best quality of life to those who call it home.  The hospitality, generosity, and friendliness of those you meet will give you the impression of a small town feel while boasting large town amenities that many have come to enjoy.  If you need to escape the slow pace life of Longview for a day or so, Dallas, Houston, and Shreveport, Louisiana are all within a few hours’ drive.   

However, Longview has so much to offer to keep you and your family busy.  The city is ideally situated within sixty minutes of six beautiful state parks and the abundance of surrounding land provides a haven for those who enjoy hunting and fishing.  Mobberly Baptist also boasts one of the city’s finest hiking/biking trails that runs along the perimeter of the 10 acre Williams Lake.  In addition to offering plenty of outdoor adventure activities, Longview’s Lear Park has become a focal point of the community and is always busy with young families enjoying the splash pad or participating in weekend games of baseball, softball, or soccer.   The city also has an abundance of parks and paved walking trails for the family to enjoy.  Downtown Longview has become a great place to spend time perusing the local shops, restaurants, and museums but Longview also provides other shopping and dining amenities that are a staple in bigger cities.  There are several annual community events held throughout the year in Longview with the largest being the Great Texas Balloon Race.   This three-day world class balloon event attracts thousands of individuals, families, vendors, artists, and exhibits and has landed Longview the title as the “Balloon Capital of Texas.” The Neal McCoy concert, Downtown Live!, Fireworks and Freedom Celebration, and Carmela’s Mini Santa Land are just a few other events that a family can enjoy.  

For young families coming to Longview, choosing the right school for your kids is just as important as finding the right church.  Currently within the footprint of Longview, there are three public school districts and a handful of private schools as well as a community college and LeTourneau University. 

Longview has so much to offer and is truly a great place to raise a family and call home!
