Sulphur Springs has many places for teenagers. For example, there is bowling, a movie theater and a town square that has many activities every weekend. Though the daytime has possibilities, nightlife could use some updating. So, I recommend spending a day in Sulphur Springs!

Sulphur Springs is a small town about a hour east of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. There is a small downtown area that boasts a few locally owned restaurants to attempt to entertain a nightlife with. Other than the few downtown blocks the rest of the town is basically traffic and car-free around 8:00-8:30 p.m. every night. If you are looking for a high paying job and want to advance in your field this town does not offer too many opportunities to do so. If you don't mind a commute to work you could drive the hour to hour and a half to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex where you could make over $5-10 per hour over the same job located here in Hopkins County. It is a quiet, quaint town for those who seek the peacefulness that you cannot ever hope to find in a big, bustling city area. The center square of downtown offers restrooms that are made of mirror.
Sulphur Springs is a nice settled small rural town with a variety of choices to do. Sulphur Springs have what its best quality is the town square, where has a life size checker board, live music, movie nights, all you can variety choices to eat with a chill atmosphere. Every year Sulphur Springs host their annual fall festival, bringing everyone in the community together and a great quality time with their families. One tradition everyone in town goes for Hopkins County Stew Contest. The best there is in North East Texas.
