The Best of the Road competition has us in search of the “Friendliest Town in America“!  Nacogdoches is one of 6 finalists and we have to see just how friendly they are!

The friendliness in Nacogdoches can be felt and seen everywhere you go. We bopped in and out of some of the Texas Certified Friendly stores.

I know the name “Texas Certified Friendly” sounds made up, but it’s not! It is a real program that requires the vendors and employees to go through hospitality training to ensure a friendly environment. It really is impressive to see how many shops and restaurants have gone though the training. This town really embodies the true meaning of Texas friendly and makes us proud to be Texas natives.
