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. Well, there is a Paris with an Eiffel Tower of its own right here in Texas and it is just a road trip away.\nYou might notice a slight difference in the Texas Eiffel Tower in how it is wearing a three and a half-foot-tall red Stetson cowboy hat because, well you know, it's Texas. The tower is located on 2025 S Collegiate Dr and is open 24 hours. During the night it lights up, displaying the colors of the Texas flag.\nThe tower first appeared in 1993 standing at 65 feet tall. There are plenty of cities in the United States that are also named Paris within different states but it wasn't until 1999 when Las Vegas got their own Effiel tower that the Texas statue got its big red cowboy hat to stand out.\nView this post on Instagram There were cows mooing when we took this picture. #paristexas #texasforever A post shared by Emily Lynn (@emy.lynn) on Sep 4, 2017 at 8:19am PDT\nView this post on Instagram Bonjour and yeehaw from Paris, Texas!🇫🇷🤠 A post shared by The Bowling Sisters (@thebowlingsisters) on Sep 22, 2017 at 8:44pm PDT\nThe tower is open to the public and free to visit any time of year.
