    Default Favorite Texas city under 5,000 population

    OK Texas travelers (where is our West Texas friend?) - give us your favorite city under 5,000 population.

    I like Gruene, though I've only been there twice. A fun place to say the least - unreal bbq.

    I'm guessing Fredericksburg is well over 5,000 now - but it feels small and is an awesome town.

    Out east - tough to say - I don't care for most smaller towns out here. Rusk is decent, with a few things to do. Their 9 hole golf course is a trip. San Augustine, the unofficial oldest town in Texas, is over-rated. Carthage is a nice town. I might lean toward Palestine, but I'm sure it's bigger than 5,000 - probably more like 11,000.

    Breckenridge is just a little too big at 5800 or so, but I love that town. Burnet is just under 5000, but it wont be that way much longer. Nice town that is awesome on Friday nights. Marble Falls is listed with a population of 4959. Awesome town on a great lake.

    I was going to say Livingston, but the population is just barely over 5000.

    easy for me-

    Windthorst(pop about 475 because everyone lives outside of town on dairies)
    1. Hardest working people I've ever been around.
    2. They believe you should relax(party) as hard as you work!
    3. Almost no crime, and I mean zero. It's like one big family there, but in a good way. Things tend to be handled the old fashioned way.
    4. They believe their kids should work hard too, and it carries over to the schools.
    5. The church is the centerpiece of the town, and IMO the reason for the town's success. This is a very beautiful church, especially for a small town. If you go, make sure to walk down to the grotto, below the church.

    My favorite under 5K is just under 5K and that's Marble Falls.

    Palestine had 17K in the last census. Fredericksburg has 8K.

    I've been to Mentone a few times and there's not much there. The court house still has 2 stories even though the county has less than 100.
