Loved the nice clean downtown. We ate at the Downtown Delight that served frozen yogurt. We're able to sit outside n enjoy the sights n sounds. Train going by, the oil derricks, the town was lit up. Pleasurable trip.

Kilgore is a small-mid size town. Driving in the traffic was easy. Comparing this to Houston, TX traffic.
