Sulphur Springs is located just a short drive to the Dallas/Ft Worth metroplex. We have state ranked 4-A schools. Our high school wins District UIL Academic consistently with many students going on to State competition. We are also highly competitive in Sports and Fine Arts. State Football Champions 2008!
Our downtown features one of the few historically designated courthouses in Texas "on- the- square" with great eating, banking and antique shopping. The Downtown Business Alliance and Revitalization board have been instrumental in a gorgeous revamp that has begun on Main St. Be sure to visit Belle Amie Day Spa and Salon and our wonderful new LouViney Winery and Bistro.
We also have many well-known franchise restaurants, a Wal-Mart Supercenter and a Lowe's Home Improvement as well as various other retail establishments. For recreation, Sulphur Springs is only 20 minutes from the following lakes and parks in every direction: Lake Fork (bass, catfish, crappie), Bob Sandlin, Cypress, Cooper and Tawakoni. These locations are great for outings that involve camping, hiking, horseback riding, as well as all types of boating. We also feature a 6-theatre stadium seating Starplex Cinema that plays first - run movies. Cooper Lake State Park is home to an amphitheater site currently being constructed to feature outdoor concerts and events. Our downtown Main Street Theatre also has ongoing community plays. A few years ago we developed a large soccer and baseball complex complete with walking trails, tennis courts, fishing dock and Imagination Mountain with a full time running waterfall! You will always find families playing, fishing or walking here and many an engagement photo features the waterfall in the background. Currently, in our city park there is a community pool and Kids Kingdom playground. The city has also partnered for a grant to build a skateboarding complex and refurbish the basketball courts- and they look great! Hopkins County features two different festivals a year. In September, we host the Fall Festival- home of world famous Hopkins County stew, which was a feature on the Food Network channel a few years ago. June is "Dairy Month," featuring the 50-year-old Dairy Festival tradition, complete with homemade ice cream and pageant! It helps us celebrate the dairy industry, which is a rich heritage of Hopkins County and much of the surrounding area.
