Welcome to Nacogdoches, the Garden Capital of Texas. Known as the First Town in Texas - or The Oldest Town in Texas - it is in Nacogdoches that you walk in the footprints of history. Texas starts here. For centuries the people who have called these lush forests home cultivated the land and tended gardens that nourished the body and spirit. Our streets are lined with landmarks sacred to Texas history. Caretakers of these historic places diligently preserve the original atmosphere with eye-catching landscaping and native plants.
Make time to experience the abundant activities in Nacogdoches. Choose from fishing, water skiing, camping and boating fun on Lake Nacogdoches, Lake Naconiche or Sam Rayburn Reservoir. Enjoy any of the 16 city parks, six city tennis courts and a rodeo or concert at the Nacogdoches County Exposition Center.
The people of Nacogdoches have a long-standing tradition of thoughtfully cultivating the splendor of nature, making life more pleasant for residents and visitors alike. We invite you to discover the charm of Nacogdoches. You may just decide to stay and become a part of the Garden Capital of Texas.
Nacogdoches is home of the Texas Blueberry Festival, presented by Brookshire Brothers. Make plans to attend the Saturday, June 14, 2014 event!
