From train rides, horse drawn carriage rides to riverboat rides in Jefferson Texas, Caddo Lake and Lake O the Pines you will find many historic things to do in Jefferson.
For the shopper in you they have more antique shops than any other town in the Piney Woods. Plus so many great new boutique shops have opened up in the past few years, seriously, there is no shortage whatsoever.
Our first stop ➡️ Jefferson General Store.
Brian and I were super hungry after our boat ride through Caddo Lake so we walked straight up to the soda fountain for a couple of chili cheese dogs.
And promptly washed those hot dogs down with a couple of Bluebell ice cream milkshakes.
So much for a clean diet 💁🏼
The Jefferson General Store has memorabilia from many many decades ago that adorn the walls of this old 1860’s building.
The shop is stocked full of nostalgic candy, souvenirs, ice cream, pralines, jams, jellies, toys, soda fountain, tshirts and pure fun everywhere you look.
If you have little ones, be sure to pop in so they can look around and discover a piece of candy to take home with them.
This pre-civil war town has scenic streets, charming restaurants, quaint bed & breakfasts (tons of them), historic hotels, walking trails and perfect Insta spots.
Around every corner.. .
You’ll see more and more antique shops, cafes, boutiques and museums, churches . . . and historic B&Bs.
Now we know why so many women make girls trips to this town. 💁🏼
We thought it was really charming.
And with it being only 2 hours away, we would definitely make another day trip of it.
(pin it for later)
Oh one more thing, since the “kids” had a babysitter, we took our sweet time cruising back to Plano.
We popped back over to Mount Pleasant for some Brisket Pizza at Nardello’s on the square.
You’ll love it!!
