I Love Paris in the Springtime

Well, Paris Texas that is.  It's probably the closest I'll ever get to the real place.  When I saw in Roadtrippers.com that there was a replica of the Eiffel tower in Paris TX, I added to our itinerary.


It's not exactly a true replica, since this one has a red cowboy hat on the top.  I'm pretty sure the one in France would be sporting a beret, if it were to wear a chapeau.

We first spotted this cell tower and wondered if this was the Eiffel Tower.  It would have saved a lot of money to just add the cowboy hat to the cell tower.



Well, I guess that wouldn't have been quite as attractive.

The 65 foot tower is lighted for nighttime viewing and there is a Veterans Memorial under construction next to it.  It is located next to the Hope Civic Center, so there was easy parking for any size vehicle.



Finding it was a bit of a challenge, so I contacted Roadtrippers with the actual address for future searchers and it has already been corrected on the site. It was a nice visit and fun photo op.  

Viva La Queen!

  2. Viva la Queen, for sure ... what an awesome replica, though I am not sure about the hat. I agree that a beret would be more kosher ... but I am thinking I wouldn't say that out loud in Texas :) And I have to comment on your cat house as well (cat house? hmmmm). I will be very surprised if when you aren't looking either George or Gracie find their way into this lovely (lovely?) hide away. All cats like to be inside of something, it's in their genes. But no cat likes to be told to like something ... that is also in their genes. Best wait long enough for them to forget that you told them and they will think they found it on thier own. Then they will probably be fighting over that very special space. You are for sure handy and dare I say wise, given that you accosted a stranger over a piece of cardboard. It's always fun to come over and see what you are up to, Queen of fashionable morning attire (I thought I was the only one who threw clothes over my PJ's in the morning so I could go out with the dog). Be safe on your trip home ...
