Make the Most of a Texas Vacation

They say everything is bigger in Texas. Wide open spaces, famous landmarks and good food all make for a great travel experience. Do you need a few unique ideas to help you enjoy the Texas experience? Here are a few great places to visit.


Anyone who has been to the San Antonio River Walk will understand how enjoyable it can be. Dozens of landscaped walks, bridges and waterfalls dot the area. You can take a riverboat tour past interesting architecture, historical sites and stunning vegetation.

Great Food

People love to eat. It is the national pastime. People bond over sharing a good meal and a few laughs. Enjoy a picnic at the Dallas Arboretum or near the water at Krause Springs. Or for a truly memorable dining experience, treat yourself to some of the best seafood Plano Tx has to offer, along with mouthwatering sides like sweet potato fries or authentic hushpuppies.

National and State Parks

Enjoy the natural beauty of Texas on a drive or hike through one of the state or national parks, including Big Bend, a park that runs along a 90-degree curve of the Rio Grande River and which covers an area larger that Rhode Island. Other interesting parks include Hueco Tanks Historic Site featuring ancient pictographs, and Padre Island national seashore, where Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles are found.

Cultural Experiences

Feed your artistic side with a visit to some art exhibits, museums or galleries. Start with a visit to some of the historic painted churches dating back to the late 1800s. Take advantage of photo opportunities at the Sculpture Gardens in Frisco, Hanna Springs, or Houston. Finish up by perusing the contemporary works at the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

Whatever your taste and preferences, plan to spend a few days in Texas during your summer vacation. Big enjoyment is calling your name and you won’t be disappointed.
