If you take the RR ride round trip you'll depart and return to Palestine.
We've been here since May, and found a number of places to eat that I've taken out of towners to and gotten the amazed I never knew that kinda place was here startled expression so often I've come to expect it.
Find the hollow on Crawford St called Old Town Palestine just west of the Court House & north of the Kroger that has several good time places with music, great food and antique stores. The May flood wiped out the Hollow, but everything is now back open and revamped mo bettah in some cases.
Find a unique Italian pizza & pasta place called Switch for a unexpected experience. 1/2 a block north of the Loop on Royalle - 1 block east of Sycamore at the light & the Loop, just west of the retail shopping & hotel strip. Lots of unusal craft beer choices that changes weekly too. Took my youngest in there, among others from Dallas , who has 20+ years in High End Food in North Dallas, he sez Switch is a total surprise and well worth the trip anytime... and the food reminds him of the SF Bay Area in California in quality at half the price.
Downtown there's a German bakery that's been in the same location since 1908 called Eilenbergers that serves breakfact and plate lunches that is a must stop for the Sweet Goods if nothing else. On John St 4 -5 doors north of Crawford, and across the street from City Hall's parking area.
There's a high end resturant on the top floor of the restored 1890's4 story hotel downtown too, just south of the City Hall...I'm saving that for our 49th anniversary this coming December.
Who knew Palestine could offer something besides the usual East Texas fare!?!? surprise surprise...what a pleasant surprise.
There is also a B&B Winery out north of town ummm 3-4 miles north of the Loop on Link St, north of the Davey Dogwood Park that has to be seen in the Spring to be believed, and the Country Club. It gets some quiet notice but we haven't been there yet, so I won't comment except to mention that there is such an experince here too.
