Paris…….Texas that is, serves as a destination full of attractions that interest tour groups as well as those just looking for a place to relax and experience our Historic charm.
People visit Paris because we are “Paris”! Our “Texanized” Eiffel Tower located at our Love Civic Center is visited daily by people from all over Texas, the U.S. and around the world! We take pride in knowing that Paris and Lamar County provide a variety of events, culture, and pure enjoyment to delight visitors as well as residents.
The Red River Valley Veterans Memorial is a daily reminder of how precious our freedom is to us, and is also a place where family members as well as our guests can reflect and give a prayerful “Thank You” to those who have faithfully served, and those who are presently serving our great country.
Paris has a great variety of things to do such as Historic places of interest, self-guided tours of historic homes, and great spaces outdoors to enjoy with family and friends.
Come prepared to ride on our Trail de Paris, a section of the great NETT, Northeast Texas Trail which includes 130 miles through 19 towns and 7 counties with Paris in the middle! People are already using the trial regardless of present conditions and continue to promote the “future” longest hike/bike/equestrian trail in Texas to their family and friends!
You didn’t pack a bike? Rent one at our Love Civic Center and explore Paris or the trail!
Barber Hills Trail at Pat Mayse Lake in Powderly, Texas is just minutes from Paris and is a single super-fast mountain bike trail with great traction year around. Inner loop for beginners, and outer loop for advanced!
