Plan Your Trip

Nestled in the East Texas Pineywoods, Atlanta, Texas offers visitors scenic landscapes, unique shopping opportunities, and hometown events. There’s something for everyone in this small town with big personality!

A Park for All Seasons

Sitting on the shores of Wright Patman Lake, Atlanta State Park boasts towering pine trees and hardwoods that serve up fall and spring color- and plenty of summertime shade. Head to the park for fishing in the 33,750-acre reservoir (with 75-pound catfish!) or go for a day of boating, swimming, and waterskiing. For landlocked adventuring, there are 4.8 miles of hiking trails, ranger-led activities, geocaching, and more! To learn more visit the Atlanta State Park website.

Stay Local. Shop Local.

Both charming and laidback, downtown Atlanta is a shopping and dining district with everything from antiques and flea-market-finds to boutique shops and more. It’s not uncommon to come across a pop-up market, live music, or an art event in the local parks and plazas. For the overnight traveler, there are several conveniently located hotels in town- so put your boots by the bed and stay with us awhile. View a list of local merchants here.
