Dubbed “the oldest town in Texas”, Nacogdoches goes back 10,000 years as a settlement of Native Americans. Re-founded by Spanish settlers in 1716, the town is steeped in ancient history and has been brushed by modern history as well. The spirit of the old Spanish missions and the Wild West combine with breathtaking natural surroundings to make this town one of Texas’ hidden treasures.
Take a trip back in time at the Caddo Mounds, a preserve of ancient Native America. Or visit the reconstruction of the first Spanish mission in Texas at Mission Tejas State Park. You can also return to the days of cowboys and gunslingers at the Historic Town Center.
Nacogdoches isn’t just about history; a wide variety of experiences in the great outdoors await. Everything from fishing to ziplining is available around town, and the area is well-known as the premier location for bird-watchers in Texas. There are plenty of arboretums, gardens, and nature trails that are open to the public.
The city has a great selection of fine restaurants of every type, with the authentic Mexican, Tex-Mex, and down-home American cuisine that Texas is famous for. And of course, you always have the option of staying in, enjoying the great amenities, and relaxing. Book your stay at an IHG hotel today for a comfortable and relaxing trip.
