Taking Leave with a Smattering of Texas Fun

There is definitely no scarcity of things to do and see while you're in Texas. You can have fun by paying either a great deal of money or a little, depending on your style. Naming the things to do across the entire state would fill an encyclopedia, so here are just a few of the numerous 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 called Schlitterbahn. The compound is really two parks mixed —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. Probably the most fascinating thing at the park is its Water Roller Coaster, an experience that is made up of twists and turns and even uphill runs on water jets. The assortment of things to do will make everybody in the family satisfied, whether they want rest or thrills.

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

If you're a thrill seeker or want to see for yourself that ghosts actually exist, head down to San Antonio to the Haunted Railroad Crossing. The tale of the crossing goes back 60 years ago to a team 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 pushed off by children's hands from behind. Many claim to have had this happen to them, and a handful of have gone as far as sprinkling flour on their bumpers, only to see the small handprints right after they've rolled off. The location has grown quite a bit recently, and it's hard to get a turn on the tracks. But if you actually want an adventure, this is one spot you certainly want to head to.
