Although it was a holiday, we did find a couple of the stores in downtown open. Always enjoy all the unique shopping and the friendly merchants!

This small town has so much potential! It just appears to be neglected, forgotten by a new generation and left to deteriorate. There's so much history here and it's obvious that back in the 1970's there was a group of individuals that were determined to...More

We visited a number of antique shoppes on a nice Saturday afternoon. The old buildings are so charming. Unfortunately, I could't help but feel the town is dying. I hope I'm wrong, but there are so many vacant buildings, I assume victims of "progress" out...More

Downtown Denison is hopping... It has old world charm and is kept up very well. There are several shops that will interest you.

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

So many cute shops, antique shops, theaters, local brew house, coffee house, restaurants, pubs, cafes and bakeries. Plenty of parking on street and in the next block over. We were here Thanksgiving weekend and there was an ice skating rink set up. There were Christmas...More
