Nothing to do here, but it's a quick stop for a cute photo op. Easy to find with GPS. The Veteran's Memorial is right there, as well. The building next door rents bicycles to ride around the city park across the street.

As the title states - if you are in the area stop for a photo. However, it is not worth coming to Paris for just this attraction.

The replica is smaller than I expected and a bit disappointing, but still worth a stop. The adjacent outdoor war memorial is moving, in the way all war memorials are. Stroll through the listings of names and feel the valor and hope for a better...More

If your near Paris dont miss this landmark but dont make a special trip not much there. It was fun to get a picture taken here but that was about all to do, maybe we missed out on the other sites.

My daughter just finished studying Madeline, and I thought it would be neat for her to see an "Eiffel Tower" albeit not the original. She, being 5, was fascinated. It's nice, well maintained, and we weren't the only ones stopping for photos. The Memorial next...More

I wouldn’t make a special trip, but it is worth a look if you are passing through Paris, Texas. At 65 feet it is about a 1,000 shorter than the original.
