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 whole lot of money or a little, depending on your taste. Naming the things to do throughout the whole 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 greatest water parks in the U.S. is in Texas, and it's referred to as Schlitterbahn. The facility 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 exciting water slides and another lazy river. Most likely 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 variety of things to do will make everybody in the family satisfied, whether they want relaxation 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 rent inner tubes and floats and different courses, ranging from one to four hours. Travelers can get a tube and float lazily down the river, enjoying the sun and partaking of their favorite 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, group of friends or an individual can enjoy.

If you're a thrill seeker or want to see for yourself that ghosts really exist, head down to San Antonio to the Haunted Railroad Crossing. The story of the crossing goes back 60 years ago to a group of children on a school bus that got stranded on the tracks just as a train came by. The story now goes that if a car is stopped on the tracks, it will be pushed off by children's hands from behind. Several claim to have had this occur to them, and a handful of have gone as far as sprinkling flour on their bumpers, only to see the small handprints after they've rolled off. The location has developed quite a bit recently, and it's tough to get a turn on the tracks. But if you really want an adventure, this is one place you surely want to go.
