Friona, the biggest small town in Texas.
We invite you to stop by Friona -not just for the night, week or season - but for a lifetime in a community with strong family values and local merchants that care about you and your family.
Friona is not just a town, it's a home and a safe harbor from today's spiraling crime rates and violence. You'll find smart, hard-working people and an energetic workforce that understands the obligations of employment. The same pioneering spirit that settled this area still abounds in the thousands of area residents that look out for each other.
You'll find professional services available in the area including (to just name a few) veterinary, equipment, dairy services and many dedicated business owners and professionals who strive to give you the best service possible.
Friona offers lodging facilities for a night or an extended visit. Friona Inn provides 25 rooms for visitors and temporary workers. While enjoying the local hospitality, take time to enjoy a satisfying meal at one of the local restaurants. Friona also has a municipal swimming pool and three baseball parks.
