Taking Leave with a Smattering of Texas Fun

There is definitely no shortage of things to do and see while you're visiting Texas. You can have excitement by paying either a good deal of money or a little, depending on your style. Listing the things to do throughout the entire state would fill an encyclopedia, so here are just a couple of the many things you can take in while you're there.

One of the best water parks in the U.S. is in Texas, and it's named Schlitterbahn. The compound is actually two parks combined —one an older nostalgic "muddy water" slide and lazy river park — the other a more up-to-date, chlorinated park with exciting 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 selection of things to do will make everybody in the family satisfied, whether they want rest or thrills.

A distinct kind of water ride, one that's much more relaxing, is the Guadalupe River. The river is set up with stations to lease inner tubes and floats and various courses, ranging from one to four hours. Guests can get a tube and float lazily straight down the river, making the most of the sun and partaking of their favorite beverage along the way. There are even locations to stop and have a picnic on shore. This Texas pastime is a peaceful, serene day-long activity that a family, group of friends or an individual can take pleasure in.

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