East Texas Defined

The definition of East Texas varies. There's Upper East Texas and Deep East Texas, and even South East Texas.

As a generality, East Texas is considered to be the region east of Interstate 45, and west of the Louisiana border. The northern border is Oklahoma, while the southern edge is the Gulf of Mexico.

Located in rolling hills, deep woods and pasture land, East Texas has a wide range of appeal, and things to do in the cities and on short road trips.

As you visit and navigate East Texas, it is hoped that the mapping provided on this site provides assistance for residents and visitors alike.
