I grew up in Longview and so when Mother’s Day rolled around we would take my sweet Mother to Guthrie Park. We lived close to this park and it is a very special place for my family. Guthrie Park has over 28 acres of beautiful wooded scenery and 1.25 miles of hiking and bike trails. We would walk and ride our bikes stopping at the perfect place to enjoy our delicious picnic lunch.  It’s a great way to have quite time with your Mother and enjoy nature. We would have a relaxed day just enjoying each others company! This is very budget friendly if you are a poor college student.

#2 – Pizza King – Longview, Texas

Pizza King ‘takeout’ – Again this is another special place for me and my family. When my parents moved to Longview from Tyler, they made fast friends with Hal Inman, the owner of Pizza King. It’s been a family tradition ever since! On Mother’s Day we would order ‘Takeout’ so we could go back to my parents house and play board games! Our favorite game to play is Scrabble!   Nobody makes this delicious, thin crust pizza better! They’ve been in Longview since 1963. The prices are awesome too. You’ll find Pizza King at 1100 East Marshall in Longview. 903 -753-0912. Once again, it’s all about spending time with your Mom and family!
