Overall a good place to live, but don't expect muc


Star Rating 5/11/2009
Paris is a nice, fairly safe place to live, but there is little to do. It is a good place to raise children, but because there is so little to do, some get into trouble with drugs and/or drinking. The drug problem is one reason the crime rate is so high here. There is usually about one activity a month at the town square or convention center and a fairly large arts community with a community theatre, but otherwise most activities revolve around one's local church: there are lots of revivals and other church-related social functions. There are a few honky tonks and one wine bar with very strange hours, but overall living in the town is boring, especially if one doesn't like either the religious or honky tonk extreme. Given the higher income level and sophiscation of many of the citizens (compared to other small towns in Texas), it is somewhat surprising that there is so little to do. Although come to think of it, most are probably busy raising their families. Dallas is less than two hours away and many of my friends go for activities there.
