East Tawakoni is my retirement home.  The population is 883, and holding steady.  The city is located in Rains County, about 50 miles East of Dallas, on the shores of Lake Tawakoni.   The city motto is "Come for a weekend, stay for a lifetime".  That is what Chris and I have done.

The city is involved in a three year project to replace the 50 year old "2-mile bridge" with a new, higher, wider structure.  The city is small enough that the bridge leading to the city IS big stuff.
