Taking Leave with a Smattering of Texas Fun

There is definitely no shortage of things to do and see while you're in Texas. You can have fun by spending either a good deal of money or a little, depending on your style. Naming the things to do throughout the whole state would fill an encyclopedia, so here are just a handful of the numerous things you can take in while you're there.

One of the greatest water parks in the U.S. is in Texas, and it's referred to as Schlitterbahn. The compound is really two parks combined —one an older nostalgic "muddy water" slide and lazy river park — the other a more up-to-date, chlorinated park with thrilling water slides and another lazy river. Most likely the most exciting thing at the park is its Water Roller Coaster, a ride that is made up of twists and turns and even uphill runs on water jets. The variety of things to do will make everyone in the family happy, whether they want rest or thrills.

A different kind of water ride, one that's much more relaxing, is the Guadalupe River. The river is fixed up with stations to lease inner tubes and floats and different courses, ranging from one to four hours. Tourists can get a tube and float lazily straight down the river, experiencing the sun and partaking of their preferred beverage along the way. There are even spots to stop and have a picnic on shore. This Texas pastime is a quiet, serene day-long activity that a family, team of buddies or an individual can enjoy.

If you're a thrill seeker or want to see for yourself that ghosts actually exist, go straight down to San Antonio to the Haunted Railroad Crossing. The story of the crossing goes back 60 years ago to a team of kids on a school bus that got stuck on the tracks just as a train got here. The story now goes that if a car is stopped on the tracks, it will be moved off by children's hands from behind. Several claim to have had this occur to them, and a few have gone as far as sprinkling flour on their bumpers, only to see the small handprints after they've rolled off. The site has developed quite a bit lately, and it's difficult to get a turn on the tracks. But if you actually want an journey, this is one location you certainly want to head to.
