What Bert Has To Say About Texarkana Metro Area


This area straddles the Texas-Arkansas border with Texarkana, Texas, to the west and Texarkana, Arkansas, to the east. The twin cities are inseparable. In fact, the state line bisects the post office, which serves them both simultaneously. Typical for the region, both cities are plain and quiet but business-friendly. Low business costs and a strategic location bring a fairly large albeit low-tech manufacturing base, including such items as tires, aluminum, cardboard and pipe fittings.
