As described by the other tips, it is oddly not a centerpiece of the town. It is not even well seen from any of the main roads, but part of a park with a playground. There is a fence around the tower to discourage people from climbing it. Too bad..... that would be a great photo op.

Eiffel Tower and Biggest Fish Fry

Paris was pretty cool. I'd definitely go back again. It's only 2 hours from Nashville, after all. I was a bit disappointed in the catfish, though. I suppose when you're cooking up over 10,000 pounds of fish, you can't always buy select pieces. It tasted good -- it was just a lot more backbone than I'm used to. They've been doing this for 51 years, and they've got the assembly line preparation and service down to a science.

The Eiffel Tower was a bit weird. You'd think it would be somewhere in middle of town, or at least highly visible. We could barely see it from one of the main roads, behind a cemetery. More impressive than the Eiffel Tower (to me, at least), was the "Welcome to Paris" sign. Although they could've easily included an Eiffel tower on the sign, they scoffed at convention and put a huge catfish there instead. This said to me, "Sure we're named after a famous city in France, but we're much more than that - we're also home to the World's BIGGEST Fish Fry!"

We spent a little time in downtown Paris. Easily one of the prettiest town squares I've seen. Lots of trees, very parklike. We stopped in a bar called the Gator Pit. It was full of real characters -- someone even gave us a whole tray of chicken wings from across the street. Wow. We felt like regulars immediately.

The original 60-ft. tall Eiffel Tower replica, which started to deteriorate, has been replaced by a new 70-ft. tall model.

This is a very overlooked attraction. It's located in Paris, TN, a popular boating area near the Kentucky border. The replica, made of black metal, is about 3 stories high. It's nestled in a small park, along with a swingset, on the outskirts of the city-near some high voltage power lines, I think. The tower is hard to find, but worth it. It was made by Rhodes College in Memphis.
