I really hate it that Denison is demolishing its old historic brick streets. Back home in Nacogdoches, the oldest town in Texas, they kept up the brick streets as it adds charm and historic value to the town. Yes, they are rough but at least...More

Downtown Denison has worked hard to have something for everyone. There truly is something to entertain everyone, from antique shopping, to small town cafes, even a winery. The chamber calendar boasts many family friendly events.

Denison downtown reminds me of what life was like in my home town in the 50's- 60's. It is very small-townish with local ownership of all the shops & botiques & hardware store, service businesses, antique shops, pubs, ice cream places, etc. The houses had...More

I went there a few days ago and it was very old and run down. The roads were brick and it looked like it was built in the wagon times! The employees in the antique store didn't say hello when I walked in! Very rude.

We left the beach at Texhoma Lake to seek some browsing through historic Denison, TX. Main Street is very strollable. There are antique stores, art shops and small town venues. Be sure to get a burger and milk shake at Warson's Drive In.

We went to Music on Main on Friday night, then went to Tupelo Honey afterwards. For a small, somewhat depressed downtown area, they try really hard and do a good job. Not as attractive as downtown Sherman, but very close.
