This small city southeast of Dallas offers antique shopping, live theater, lakes, parks and a drive-in theater. As a Texas Main Street City, Ennis has preserved many historic buildings in its downtown area. The Texas Legislature named the city the "Official Bluebonnet City of Texas." Each April, the Ennis Garden Club sponsors the Bluebonnet Trails, one of the oldest wildflower events in Texas, featuring 40 miles of marked trails.

The National Polka Festival, celebrating Ennis' Czech heritage, is held on Memorial Day weekend.
