Strolls down Main Street often result in a friendly chat with a neighbor, or a stop at one of the many unique shops, restaurants, public library or City Hall.

The tree-lined streets, historic atmosphere and small-town charm even led to the movies “Hope Floats” and “The Tree of Life” being filmed in Smithville, making it the first city in Texas to be named “Film and Family Friendly” by the Texas Film Commission.
