Cities to Visit: Sulphur Springs, Texas
Sulphur Springs, Texas - Where you lose your stress,
not your bankroll! Nestled in rolling farm country in beautiful northeast
Texas, only 85 miles from the heart of Dallas, Sulphur Springs offers
an experience far removed from the grind of life in the big city.
Whether you're seeking family activities, learning experiences, fishing,
hunting, shopping, or just some quiet time away from stress, Sulphur
Springs has it all.
Fishermen and water sports enthusiasts find Sulphur Springs the ideal
place to stay, with four major lakes and trophy bass within a thirty-minute
drive. Shoppers can comb through the treasures in more than a dozen antiques
shops, or shop for bargains in factory direct stores.
If nothing else, just relax under our shade trees and enjoy life. Families
looking for shared experiences can wander through Heritage Park's
collection of restored buildings and displays of prehistoric dinosaur
bones and other fossils. For something a little more recent, visit the Southwest
Dairy Museum and Learning Center, where the history of milk
production from the early Twentieth Century to the present, is presented
in dioramas and static displays as well as hands-on exhibits.
A variety of events are held each year in Sulphur Springs, including
the Dairy Festival in June, with the Texas State
Champion Homemade Ice Cream Freeze-Off, the Independence
Day Celebration on the Square, which ends with a live concert
and fireworks show; and in September, the Hopkins County Stew
Contest is a part of the annual Fall Festival.
Two beautiful city parks offer a place to wind down and let children
play in Kids Kingdom or frolic in the waterfall. This
is Sulphur Springs, where you lose your stress, not your bankroll!
