It's no surprise the area around Center is such a hotspot for travelers; the region is dotted with interesting cultural and natural attractions. If you're keen to explore more of the region, you'll find San Augustine, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the north, and Carthage 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south.
Nacogdoches, is another good place to visit. It is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Center and offers a number of interesting things to see and do, such as Stephen F. Austin State University, William R. Johnson Coliseum and Homer Bryce Stadium. Nacogdoches has lots to offer visitors willing to stay for a day or two. Stone Fort Museum and Woodland Hills Golf Club are just a couple of the other attractions worth a visit.
Venture into the past while you are staying in Piney Woods. Take a trip to one of the historic mansions for which the area is known.
Pack your own equipment or rent some when you get here, and get out onto the water. Fishing is a good activity to try. Another one is canoeing.
For those who intend on arriving and departing by air, it's good to remember that the nearest major airport is Shreveport Regional Airport, 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the northeast of Center.
