It was founded in 1871 and developed along with the growth of the oil industry in Texas and today hosts the annual East Texas Oil Expo where the industry comes together to find out about latest developments in oil. It’s also a popular cultural city having a thriving arts scene as well as being a growing shopping destination for the county.

How do I get to Longview?
The easiest way to get in or out of Longview is to use Longview East Texas Regional Airport. Whilst a small, privately owned airport, it does have a daily flight with American Airlines from Dallas Fort Worth Airport which gives it access to much of the nation. The airport is only a couple of miles from the centre and easily accessed by local bus, car hire or taxi. Most of the visitors are business travellers in the oil industry and the route is a busy one.
What should I Do When in Longview?
Time it right and you’ll have one of the most incredible spectacles, seeing the Great Texas Balloon Race where hundreds of hot air balloons set off in July. The month before, the city hosts Alleyfest, a street festival celebrating the cultural and artistic highlights of the city which has exhibitions, shows, live music and more.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

Longview is best known for its huge annual balloon race but it’s also a busy regional shopping centre. Many people hire cars in Longview to find out what the city has to offer. Car hire in Longview is very reasonably priced allowing you to spend your savings in the many big name shops in the city.
Out of the city, Longview car hire can get you to the many smaller towns and cities that are found in this eastern part of Texas. Road conditions are favourable for most of the year meaning that a standard hire car with air-conditioning suits most people but freezing temperatures and snow is a regular occurrence in winter and so if travelling to the city at that time of year, consider a 4 x 4 hire car in Longview.
