Vacation in Historic Jefferson, Texas Before School Starts!

Posted on: July 27th, 2010 by Delta Street Inn

Once the premier port city to the southwest, Jefferson bathes you in Civil War era history and architechture of the deep south and New Orleans. You will feel as if you have travelled much farther than the short drive that takes you almost beyond the piney woods of East Texas.

Adventure awaits you. Great selection of bed and breakfast inns (B&B’s), restaurants galore, unique shopping and a wide array of attractions. Carriage rides, steam train, Big Cypress Bayou boat tours, ghost walk, home tours, soda fountains, history museum, car museum, lake activities at Lake O’ the Pines and boat tours on Caddo Lake…one a wood-fired, steam-driven paddle wheel boat reminiscent of Jefferson’s port city hay day. Refresh yourself with a cold, hand squeezed limeade.
