Best Shopping Experience

Downtown Sulphur Springs. The number of places to shop in downtown Sulphur Springs are too numerous to mention but suffice it to say visitors find antiques, clothing, wine, books, jewelry, paintings, candy, and so much more. There’s also a day spa and many dining choices all with a backdrop of the amazing courthouse park that has places to sit and enjoy the veterans plaza, a splash pad, beautiful landscaping, game tables, and the unique see-through bathrooms. This town calls this area the "Celebration District" and it’s easy to see why. www.sulphurspringstx.org
