Southwest Dairy Museum and Learning Center, Sulphur Springs

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!
