Places to Vacation in Texas Print E-mail

Are you considering places to vacation in Texas?  While no spot is perfect for every situation, there are some locations that cover the bases better than others. 

Family Trips: These require a place that offers something for everyone. In a warm Texas summer, a spot on the water makes great sense.  Tubing a river or water skiing on a lake during the day are refreshing and fun.  Fishing mornings and evenings are other excellent options.  Places to vacation in Texas for families should also include affordable lodging and restaurant options.  Larger towns nearby that have shopping, sightseeing and other things to do on a rainy day are a plus.

Romantic Getaways: Whether its a long weekend or an entire week, places to vacation in Texas offer just what a cozy couple is looking for.  The lodging should fit the mood, comfortable, warm, inviting with plenty of privacy.  Dining options should include more than fast food and screaming kids.  Walks along the water’s edge or in the woods are indispensable. 

Buddy Trips:  Looking for a place to head to with the guys for a few days?  Maybe do some boating and wakeboarding?  Possibly hang out in the party cove with other boats and enjoy the local scene?  There are a few places to vacation in Texas that are absolutely ideal for this. 

What type of places to vacation in Texas are you looking for?  There’s one area that is perfect for family trips, buddy or gal pal getaways and something special just for two.  The Canyon Lake area is the premier water recreation location in Texas.  Canyon Lake offers a long list of possibilities on more than 8,000 acres including boating, boarding, skiing, personal watercraft use, and fishing.  The Guadalupe River is the region’s best stretch for Texas tubing adventure. Anglers enjoy quality fishing for Striped Bass in the lake and the Guadalupe River below the Canyon Dam is stocked with Rainbow Trout. 

The natural setting around the lake and in the nearby hills offer quiet walks or vigorous hikes, whatever is on your agenda.  Nearby towns such as New Braunfels, Gruene, Bulverde, Wimberley, Fredericksburg and others provide shopping and sightseeing opportunities too. 

Dining options in the area include family restaurants, quiet, romantic spots, and clubs with plenty of energy.  The lodging choices are just as varied including full-service resorts, quaint Bed & Breakfast establishments and affordable places to get some sleep.

If you haven’t discovered this gem in the heart of Texas, we invite you to learn more.  Canyon Lake is less than an hour from San Antonio and Austin.  The natural setting in the Texas hill country is rich and beautiful.  The lake, the woods, the river and the surrounding communities truly do offer something for everyone.  As you consider places to vacation in Texas, why not put Canyon Lake on your list?
