Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas, which is why the City has gone to great lengths to preserve the history and beauty of our Downtown District. Historic buildings line the red bricks streets in the heart of the city, creating the perfect destination for shopping and dining. One of the most unique aspects of Nacogdoches is the large number of locally-owned specialty and antique stores you will find here! Visit Nacogdoches’ one-of-a-kind family-owned shops and restaurants; places that still do business the old-fashioned way. Stop into an old time string shop, the only professional stained glass studio in East Texas and an old-style barber shop like your dad used to visit. Prefer to dine and pamper between shops? Enjoy the quiche of the day at a neighborhood bakery, take in a mani/pedi at an area salon and take home some glam accessories from a special boutique!
The City of Nacogdoches has a Main Street Program that works closely with Downtown business owners to provide the best experience for our citizens and visitors alike. Our merchants meet regularly to discuss extending hours— including during major downtown events such as Wine Swirl and The Texas Blueberry Festival— as well as how to effectively use social media, enhance product photography, and more. Nacogdoches has been a part of the Texas Main Street Program for 20 years, and continues to become more unique and vibrant each year. The combination of dedicated entrepreneurs, a historic backdrop, and committed community make Downtown Nacogdoches a major tourist destination!
