Being near a national park, we are very in touch with nature. Our small town allows us to enjoy being with one another. I enjoy walking across Sulphur and waving at the occasional jogger or bicyclist. I would certainly like to fix Sulphur's traffic laws. Considering that some stop signs are blocked by hanging tree branches.

I have lived in Sulphur all of my life and it will always be my home. This community is involved and constantly works to improve every aspect of the town. The town throws many events downtown to gather people and celebrate the wonderful atmosphere.
Pretty small town, the school kinda sucks. The national park is beautiful and helps redeem the town. The Artesian hotel is gorgeous, but expensive and mostly for tourists. Everything is somewhat run down, but there is construction going on almost always. It seems to have potential. Crime is average, but the current sheriff isn't the best. Not a ton of food options either.
