Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge

Over 300 species of birds live with 200 oil wells in this refuge since 1951.

Reviewed By Solodam J - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The area is huge, it's a part of Lake Texoma at the Texas part. Beautiful nature, with pumpjack among the birds. You can drive around and stop at some spots, one with wade birds, other with waterfowl and another with shorebirds. Pickniking, hiking, fishing even hunting (with a permisson) is oke but no camping. It is a perfect place for wildlife viewing, especially birds.

Eisenhower Birthplace State Historical Park

Located in the heart of Denison, Eisenhower Birthplace State Historic Site showcases the home where the 34th U.S. President Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower was born in 1890. Antique furnishings fill the modest frame house, illustrating the working class life of the Eisenhowers. The visitors center celebrates Ike with memorabilia and exhibits featuring his many accomplishments as president and war hero.

Reviewed By NJHBNH - Folsom, California

Stop here and go to the hurst house first. There's a short film about Ike that is well worth the 5" watching time. Much memorabilia Is there and historic events nicely displayed during his presidency are reminders of our country's history and Ike's influence. The actual home is where as very young child Ike lived. Go drive around it and stop at the statue. There's a butterfly bush with hundreds of butterflies swarming around it.

Eisenhower State Park

The birthplace of the nation's 34th President, Dwight Eisenhower.

Reviewed By Kdmckinney

Full hookups, wooded, quiet, fishing, boat ramp, swimming, pets welcome. My husband and I have been twice. The RV shots were all pull thru, but some can be tricky with a bigger rig. Some are sloped or trees are in the way. The good news is that if you get to your spot and have a problem you can call and they will send you to another spot. The park is patrolled very frequently. We will be back!

Reviewed By Joe K

This was my 6th trip with Striper Express and have yet to have a bad experience. Some friends and I booked 3 boats for the 8 of us and had a blast. We caught some stripers and a multitude of sand bass. We had 2 boats load up with fish and the 3rd not so much but when the dividing was done we all left with more than enough fillets. I will be back mark my word.

Harber Wildlife Museum

Reviewed By GrahamTrucks - Sherman, Texas

The Harber WIldlife Museum is the creation of Lacy Harbor, a local businessman who owned a very large bank. He and his wife have traveled the world, bringing this amazing collection of animals and artifacts back. He purchased this property a few years ago and built the museum to share with the community. It is a really neat experience you will enjoy if you have time to drop by. Not sure their hours of operation so check in advance. It is a favorite day trip for local schools.

The Esenhower bust stands at 16ft tall upon a 5ft stone pedestal flanked by five 35ft flagpoles. Each flagpole represents one of the 5 branches of military service. Personalized engraved bricks feature veterans and their service to our country. Designed by David Adickes.

Reviewed By srosas - Fort Worth, Texas

We were actually going to the Grayson Frontier village and then we were going to see this monument. Well to our surprise we saw this statue so decided just to stop here first and realized frontier village is next to it. The monument is beautiful with bricks of names of the veterans.

Painting with a Twist- Sherman

Reviewed By 383pamelah

Painting with a twist was a wonderful experience for Girls Night Out. We needed to do some bonding and have some fun. This experience was just what we were looking for. I plan to go back with my husband because I think he will enjoy it also. This is not just a "girlie" thing to do. There have been lots of men and teens who have participated. A great activity that resulted in a painting I am proud of even though I am not the artsy type.

Downtown Denison

Reviewed By Retired_in_MX - Shamrock, Texas

We have visited here several times in the past and it is increasingly getting better. They keep the streets well maintained. Shopping is easy and fun. We find the storekeepers friendly and helpful. We especially enjoy the antique shopping. We always find something interesting and the prices are often fair and there seems to be a "bargain" each time we shop. There is no shortage of good places to eat, so plan to spend a few hours just soaking up the atmosphere.

Fastrac Charters and Cruises

Our fleet of boats can accommodate groups of just about any size. We host everything from company parties, reunions, team-building events, anniversary/wedding receptions to a fully-catered romantic evening on the lake.

Reviewed By Girl1Tx - TX

Most places were not renting boats when were in the area due to flooding. Called last minute the day we wanted to go out. They were nice enough to organize lunch, and take our family of four out on the lake for 90 minutes. We had a great time. It was interesting to hear the history of the lake and about the different buildings. The lady who gave us the tour (forgot her name!) was from DFW and really knew the history of the lake well. The driver let the kids drive the boat and told them all about the equipment. Weather was beautiful. We all had a great time. I highly suggest taking the 90 minute tour around the lake. Next time we are at Texoma we will try the dinner sunset cruise with them.
