Texas Has An Eiffel Tower

People travel from all over the world to Paris, France, to see the Eiffel Tower every year. They take selfies or do cool tricks in front of it while someone records for Instagram. It might surprise some people to know that Texas also has a Paris and it has an Eiffel Tower of its own. There is, of course, a slight difference in the two towers. The one in Paris, Texas, is wearing a 3½-foot-tall red cowboy hat, and it lights up at night to display the colors of the Texas state flag. The tower first appeared in 1993, standing 65 feet tall. Today it’s open to the public free of charge. As a bonus, it’s also pet-friendly, so feel free to bring your favorite furry friend along for the adventure. The tower doesn’t see nearly the foot traffic that the one in France sees, but it’s wise to go at the least busy times, which are between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and after 8 p.m.
