Big Cypress Bayou is part of one of the largest Cypress forests in the world. It’s a remarkable place on the edge of Jefferson, Texas – verdant and still.
Once a booming center of East Texas commerce, Jefferson is now a quiet town that specializes in relaxation. Porch-sitting is an art form here, as is strolling through the lovely, historic, downtown. Guests of Jefferson Texas bed and breakfasts enjoy leaving the car parked and exploring town on foot – easy to do in Jefferson’s compact historic downtown.
Tour boats have replaced the stern-wheelers full of goods that once navigated the Big Cypress. Turning Basin Riverboat tours lead passengers from the heart of Jefferson out into the Big Cypress Bayou. Along the way, the captain spins tales about the bayou and the fascinating people who have been drawn to it over the years. It’s always an informative and entertaining trip, and a great addition to a stay at a bed and breakfast Jefferson TX.
