Eye on Texas brings you the letter G with all guns blazing from Gun Barrel City Texas. ( I liked the name) www.gunbarrelcity.net
This is a young community with the motto "We shoot straight with you". It's southeast of Dallas and now has a population of 5000. The town emphasizes access to Cedar Creek Lake, so plan on zooming on a jet ski in the summer.
Hungry? Check out the First and Last Bar and Grill or I'm betting the Jalapeno Tree can set your mouth on fire.
