Gladewater, Texas is a great Texas town for
antiquing. It is known as the antique
capital of East Texas, and with good
reason. There are 11 antique shops within
walking distance of one another and each
shop offers a variety of unique vintage and
antique merchandise.

Back in 1995, as more stores began to take
up entire downtown blocks, the House of
Representatives of the 74th Texas
Legislature began to take notice. They
named Gladewater the "Antique Capital of
East Texas" on May 24th that year.

Now with 11 shops including a 300-vendor
mall, Gladewater has a revitalized
downtown with weekend tranquility even
during the week.

PARIS Many U.S. cities are named after the capital
of France, but only one takes the title of
“The Second Largest Paris in the World.”
Indeed, Paris, Texas rivals its French
counterpart in impressive architecture and
delicious cuisine, all along with that friendly
small-town hospitality that the Lone Star
State is known for. This version of Paris
even has its own 65-foot-tall Eiffel Tower
illuminating bright beautiful colors at
night, complete with a 10-gallon red
cowboy hat!

Beyond the obvious influences of its
European cousin, Paris is a thriving town
with 9 antique and vintage shops, an active
arts scene, picturesque parks, and all sorts
of fun annual events. No matter what

great time. Bon Voyage!
