The Lone Star State has long been known for its live music, world-class BBQ, soaring temperatures and southern hospitality, and Lufkin is no exception. Conveniently located near Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Waco, this small city is everything you’d expect from a small city with all the comforts big city life has to offer. When you book a private charter to the jet charter airport in Lufkin, you can skip the heavy traffic associated with large cities and soar into a peaceful, less hectic environment.
Founded in 1882, Lufkin was named after Galveston city councilman and cotton merchant Abraham P. Lufkin. This quaint Texas gem rose to economic prosperity largely due to the logging industry and three key families. Since then the city evolved into the culturally diverse scene it is today.
Lufkin is home to sprawling green spaces and parks, a vibrant cultural art scene, and plentiful recreational activities, like bass fishing, golfing, and more. The downtown core is also home to some pretty amazing cafes and restaurants, eclectic boutiques, and charming museums.
