The North Texas town of Corsicana is a town worth visiting. A stay at Corsicana bed and breakfasts is the perfect thing when you need to escape from the city, since the town is an hour from Dallas and 1.5 hours from Fort Worth.

The downtown area is known for its historic charm, great shops, and museums. Indeed, there are seven museums in Corsicana. At Navarro College’s Cook Center, you’ll find the excellent Pearce Western Art Museum and The Pearce Civil War Museum. After dark, wander over to the Cook Planetarium – the largest planetarium in Texas – where you may wander across the universe. Aviation enthusiasts will be drawn to the Glenn Cumble Museum of Aviation and Military History, with exhibits from World War I to present times.

If you prefer outdoor recreation to museum hopping, you’ll be pleased by what Corsicana has to offer. Cast off into Lake Corsicana or the smaller Lake Halbert. Golf at one of two excellent courses, or just meander through historic neighborhoods and take in the architecture.

No matter what you do while in Corsicana, you’ll want to bring a taste of Corsicana back home with you when you leave. Visit the Navarro Pecan Co. for nuts and dried fruits. Stop by Collin Street Bakery for one of the famous fruitcakes that have been made here since the end of the 19th century. Then pick up a box of Russell Stover Candies, also in Corsicana.

Corsicana bed and breakfast innkeepers look forward to sharing the best of their hometown with you.
