Small town charm.
- Sulfur Springs radiates the atmosphere of the Andy Griffith Show. A thing of the past where neighbors know your name. And people wave to you. It may not seem like a big deal, but it can come as a shock to visitors from other states. A simple wave, smile or nice gesture from the people who live here goes a long way. In addition, people still gather in downtown squares to eat, shop, and socialize. Planned activities will have you hopping around the square with fun. But outside the square you’ll also find chain restaurants like Chili’s, IHOP, Schlotzky’s, Chick-fil-A, Whataburger, Starbucks, Braums, Dairy Queen and Sonic.further there Local favorites include Italian restaurants in Rome, several barbecue places, Juan Pablo and Don Lalo, and Mexican restaurants in Tierra del Sol. No matter where you eat or shop, there’s a good chance you’ll run into someone you know.

Adjustment of commute distance to metroplex.
- Some people can commute further away from work and live in more rural, less populated areas. With Interstate 30 just south of downtown, it’s easily accessible from one of the main roads that connect the Dallas and Fort Worth areas.
- Land continues to be a hot commodity closer to Greenville, Rockwall and Dallas. That means most people are looking for land further east around Hopkins County. Between rolling hills, private lakes and open fields, Hopkins County offers vast panoramic vistas that are a constant source of enjoyment for its residents.
