My all-time favorite aunt lives here! She is the person I credit with showing me the world (ok, ok Italy but to a 21 year old....that's the world). This is my favorite place to visit because she owns a small house on the lake and I come here to relax and rejuvinate my spirit.

So in 1983 she bought a small lakehouse off of Cedar Creek Lake. She bought a cheap house to work on and ended up selling it for many times what she bought it for! My family began meeting here for summer holidays. Then when my grandparents got ready to retire they looked for a house on the same like (consequently right down the street from my aunt's). I've been coming to Mabank every year since I was born! It's a nice retreat from the big D or Houston! :)
Mabank is a small country city in East Texas close by Malakoff, Athens, and Gun Barrel City.
My favorite part is definitely spending time with my family. I also like the small town vibe. It's very comforting!
I also love to watch the sunset over the lake. It's so peaceful, quiet, and beautiful!
I find that I miss the little country cafe restuarants. You can't find that kinda home cookin' in Dallas or Houston...

Well, to get to Athens you're going to have to have a car anyway, because any other route would be extremely costly.... more travel advice
