Jefferson is located in Texas, west of Shreveport Louisiana. The city is an ideal spot for family fun, a couples' getaway or a long weekend with friends. Jefferson is mainly known for becoming the first town to use natural gas for lighting in Texas back in the late 1800s.
Check out the Scarlett O'Hardy's Gone with the Wind Museum, it's a must-see and a fun experience for everyone in your group. Touring Schluter House is very popular too, or you could ghost hunting at the Grove, allegedly one of the most haunted places in TX. Another popular activity for the whole family is riding the rails at Atalanta, Jay Gould's railroad car -- a wonder photo opportunity!
The best time to visit Jefferson is during the spring months when the weather is warm but not too hot and nature is in full bloom.
Stillwater Inn is known for having some of the best French steakhouse food in the area, while Austin Street Bistro is a local favorite.
