A Great Weekend Get Away Spot In East Texas

Real Estate Agent with BCR Realtors 262359

If you have never been to Jefferson in Norheast Texas you have got to try it out. My wife and I needed a short escape wekend so we chose Jefferson. Charming is an understatement. The friendliest folks in the world, loads of antique stores, antique hotels, and wonderful B and B's like the Bennefield House where we stayed. We ate well, slept well, and relaxed well. The height of our mini -weekend was the great "Paranormal tour" of homes and other buildings that rate as some of the best in the state for "ghostly activity."  A close second for fun was a  short  but fun photo trip on lake Caddo, with a nature guide. It was worth every cent of the 60 dollar fee and then some.  So if you are looking for an easy inexpensive fun  weekenede escape,with a little romantic flair....try Jefferson!

Great pictures, thanks for sharing.  I just learned that Caddo lake is the only natural lake in the entire state of Texas.

I think I would find that paranormal tour fascinating Trey. Thanks for letting us know about that in this part of Texas.

Good choice... I love Jefferson.  Don Henley of the Eagles grew up in that area and is a benefactor for the preservation of Caddo Lake.

Jefferson sounds like a wonderful place for some weekend R&R. I think a paranormal tour would be fun--never have done that ---- yet!

Did you see any ghosts?!  That's a cheap weekend getaway for $60.  You can get a meal for that in Manhattan for one person.  And it's nothing fancy!  Hope you guys had a great weekend!
