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.
