Welcome to Jefferson

The town is relatively small, but don't even think of stopping for just an afternoon. The old streets (first laid out in 1842) beg to be strolled, with a requisite stop at one of the soda fountains, of course. Then there are the antique shops to browse, historic homes to tour, ghosts to hunt... Make sure you take a boat ride on the Big Cypress Bayou, part of Caddo Lake. Jefferson's a seductive Southern belle with a checkered past – don't be surprised if you fall under her spell.
