Getting to Henderson
From Austin: This is an easy one. Hop on highway 79 and follow it North for about 200 miles. You’ll be here before you know it and the drive can be scenic.
From Dallas: Y’all have no excuse not to make this. Catch I-20 and head East. Exit for Kilgore and head South on State Highway 259. You’ll be here in no time at all
From Houston: This is the most complicated of the routes, but it’s still not bad. Catch 69 going North, then 59 North, and eventually 259 North in Nacogdoches until you run in to Henderson. See? Not too bad.
From Anywhere Else: Guys, it’s the 21st century. Plug Henderson, Texas in to Google Maps and let big tech guide you here!
Once You’ve Arrived
Check out the town. You’ll be surprised at how friendly small-town Texas can be. Henderson has a thriving history that anyone can enjoy. A couple of cool things to do include grabbing a dipped cone at the local Dairy Queen, which is the oldest location in Texas, checking out some of the cool downtown shops, and cruising some of the old country roads. You’re guaranteed to get a shot of your car that can’t be had in the city.
Accommodations: All the hotels in town are locally owned and operated. They might have large flag names, but they offer the hometown service everyone likes. A few recommendations would be the Baymont and the Motel 6 (newly remodeled). There is also a Holiday Inn if that’s your thing. If you are needing to park your truck and trailer somewhere, the Texas Bank on the North side of town, by the Dairy Queen, has a large parking lot they are letting us use for the weekend.
Food: Get this: small towns have awesome food. Sal’s Italian restaurant is some of the best around. Sundowners Bar and Grill has a killer flat-iron steak and nothing beats a burger at Mac’s downtown. We recommend getting here in time to try out a few of these places!
