Well if you are reading this you probably know all good and well about the neat post office in Texarkana that is half in AR and half in TX! Great sign out front where you can stand between the two states and makes for a great photo op. We saw other folks stopping for a photo or two as well.... More

We'd heard about this and since we had a little extra time to kill decided to check it out. It was actually pretty neat to go there and take a few pics. It was a pretty popular thing to do as we saw several others doing exactly the same thing. Very cool.

This was a must see, and very historical. Enjoyed it so much and will take grand children to see it when we return to this area.

It was a quick and interesting site, great photo pop, other than that not much else to see or do. The city should really take advantage of the uniqueness of "standing in two states at one time" but much like everything else in this town, it was severely understated.

You are able to stand with one foot in Arkansas, and one in Texas! Quite a novelty.. There is a photographers island for pictures!

Worth the drive, really. It may seem sort of silly and an erudite person would yawn and say why bother. Oh, it is just so much fun. The post office is beautiful, for one and is built on the stateline of Arkansas and Texas. Not only is the state line there for you to straddle, there was the added surprise... More

ONe must go to this site and take a picture. one foot in Texas and the other in Arkansas. Lot of history here. Down the block is a memorial site for veterans. Go inside the building for a good look at old building.

This historical site is the heart of the ArkLaTex, in my opinion. It's unique, because it's a Federal building lying in two states. It's a location that should be on your list of things to do when you're traveling to Arkansas or Texas. Just stop by and get your photo taken while standing in both states! And while you're in...

There's not a lot to do here but if you're driving through and want a pretty good photo opportunity this is a cool place to take a pic. The state line goes right through the middle of the court house and there's a sign in front with a line down the middle of the walkway. So you can literally stand... More

The Texarkana Post Office is the 2nd most photographed building in the USA. I always find it interesting to see how border towns take advantage of their location.
