The City of Crockett is known as "Paradise in the Pines."   Enjoy local drives with gently rolling hills and panoramic changes from ranches to forests.  If paradise is what you are looking for, then you have come to the right place.  Pine trees reaching the heavens are a sight to behold.

There are several antique shops to browse through in the Crockett area, garage sales, hundreds of historical markers, geneology study with the library.  Good hospital, doctors, and schools add a necessary base.
