Jeffersonn is sometimes called the “Riverport to the Southwest.” At a time when steamboats plied the Big Cypress River from the Port of New Orleans, true Southern gentility was the order of the day. This sense of timelessness prevails even today along the river banks and downtown area of Jefferson.

Riverboat and steam engine train rides help visitors and residents alike get a sense of Jefferson’s colorful past.
Relax in a carriage ride and hear the many legends and lore. Relive the past while strolling through museums and special places of interest. Spend a memorable evening in an historic hotel or motel or one of the many elegant bed & breakfasts. Jefferson is well known as the Bed & Breakfast Capitol of Texas. Ease along the brick streets and enter the merchant’s shops to see a variety of wares. Allow yourself to be captivated by culinary delights ranging from casual to fine dining. Regular music takes places at long-established venues like Auntie Skinners.
