Camping in Texas

Camping Options in Texas

Camping is an integral part of Texas tradition. Outside of the huge metropolitan cities lies an array of state parks and open terrain just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. And since you can go camping almost any evening of the year, you have no excuse for leaving the sleeping bag stuffed in your garage.

Over 70 state parks are found in Texas, so there's definitely one nearby. Set out with the family for a relaxing weekend at the campsite. Complete the cliché with a campfire and a day of fishing with the children. If things go well, you can cook the fish you caught for supper that night.

If you're in the Dallas area, take advantage of Bonham, Cedar Hill, Eisenhower, or Lake Mineral Wells state parks. All have the amenities you'd expect to find at a state park, and some have great surprises for the children. Horseback riding, boating and hiking are but a few of the fun things to do. Grab the canoe and pack up the kids.

Other places in the state, head for Hill Country in Central Texas. This area offers some of the best camping in the state, with tons of places to hike and explore. Blanco, Garner, Inks Lake, and McKinney Falls are some of the more notable parks, with playgrounds, tubing, canoeing and kayaking. Some have cabins for rent, so you can easily enjoy the outdoor experience without sleeping under the open sky.

The Best of the Many

After you've hit all the well-known and common tourist attractions and hot-spots in Dallas, keep looking – you're not finished yet. There are some eclectic and less-popular places in the city that are still well work a visit. A few are mentioned here, and there are also many more as well. These are, without a doubt, the best of the many.

Begin at the Frontiers of Flight Museum. This off-beat museum houses a display of flying machines from the beginning of flight itself to today. There's a little bit of stuff for everyone here from bi-planes to rockets, so take some time to check it out.

From the nostalgic to the modern, head over to the new stadium of the Dallas Cowboys. This technological wonder is a world unto itself with everything possible for the die-hard football fan. Whether you take the tour or see an event, you'll be amazed by the sheer size of this coliseum.

Finally, you can't leave Dallas without paying respect to President Kennedy by visiting the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Repository. The famous floor of this famous building from which the president was shot has been turned into a museum for the president, and it is a great tribute. The site can be quite crowded depending on when you visit, but if you're patient, you will be rewarded with a interesting exhibit.
