Another look: Paris, Texas


Original post: I am not as good as a wall

Paris, Texas, located north of Dallas, was one of those small towns that intrigued me as I passed through. I only briefly talked about the town in May, so here’s some more detail.

The main attraction in Paris seemed to be its town square. Around the square were a ton of antiques stores. I counted at least a half dozen. I don’t know how they all stay in business.


Near Paris is this block of real estate, which almost looks like an old-time ghost town. It’s actually just a couple of abandoned markets.


I stopped at Braum’s. The jalapeno jack cheeseburger sounded delightful, but it was out of my price range, given my daily $7 food budget. I did purchase an ice cream cone, though. Ice cream was always my top priority!


Paris was home to the infamous clothing store Stylez-4-U And More, the winner of “Worst Store Name” during my entire trip.


Which President Bush turnpike would you like to take?


I think that pretty much covers the entire town of Paris. Au revoir!

    Yes these are the places in the States that I love too, it is hard to imaghine how some of the businesses stay afloat but I love the sense of going back in time.

    Like the pics. I’m a lifelong Paris resident. I would like to point out that the pic of the George Bush Turnpike aren’t from Paris, but rather from north Dallas. 🙂
