How can one be in Paris TX and not go visit the Eiffel Tower? It was a fun stop and made me smile. The cowboy hat on top is a perfect touch. I’d say go by and take a pic if in the area!

It’s not often when you in Paris and you can drive up to the Eiffel Tower where someone put a cowboy hat on top. Welcome to Paris Texas
