What Area is Northeast Texas?

Like most regions in Texas, the area designed by the term "Northeast" will vary depending on who you ask.

More limited definitions restrict Northeast Texas to 23 counties closest to Texarkana at the border with Arkansas.

Here, Northeast Texas will refer to an area running as far south as Tyler County, east of the Trinity River and its tributaries up to Fort Worth, a number of counties around Forth Worth (Johnson, Hood, and Parker), and up towards Montague County at the border with Oklahoma.

The eastern border runs south through Texarkana from Red River until it meets the Sabine River which it then follows to the ocean.

Bowie, Cass, and Marion are the most northeast of all the counties in Northeast Texas.

Towns and Cities in Northeast Texas

Including the Dallas-Fort Worth metro makes this a major urban hub in Texas.

However, the biggest cities after Dallas-Fort Worth are Tyler and Longview, neither of which has a population of more than 100,000.

Other settlements include Texarkana, Paris, Marshall, and Palestine.

Major routes through Northeast Texas include:

  • Interstate 35 - North from Dallas-Fort Worth to Oklahoma City
  • Interstate 45 - South from Dallas-Fort Worth to Houston
  • Interstate 20 - East from Dallas-Fort Worth to Shreveport
  • Interstate 30 - Northeast from Dallas-Fort Worth to Memphis and then Jacksonville

Land & Geography of Northeast Texas

Much of the northeast is occupied by beautiful green pastures and hilly pine forests.

The area also has an abundance of natural spaces, including the Davy Crockett National Forest, Sabine National Forest, Angelina National Forest, and the Bannister Wildlife Management Area.

Famous lakes in the Northeast Texas region include Lake Livingston, Sam Rayburn Reservoir, Richland-Chambers Reservoir, Lake Palestine, Cedar Creek Reservoir, Wright Patman Lake, Lake O' the Pines, Lake Bob Sandlin, and Jim Chapman Lake.

East of Jefferson is the Big Cypress Bayou, featuring wetlands and dense forests typical of the South's famous bayous. In general, the pine forests, green hills, and the warm wet climate of Northeast Texas are continuous with states to the east, like Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

Northeast Texas Culture

Northeast Texas shares much of its way of life and culture with the South, including dialect and cuisine.

Northeast Texas is also known for its railways, Northeast Texas Community College, rose growing, and perhaps the longest-running flea market in the U.S., the First Monday Trade Days held in Canton.
