Visiting The Alamo

The Alamo in Texas

San Antonio is home to The Alamo, one of the most historic sites in The Lone Star State. It's a legendary landmark straight from American History, and you can still visit it and take part in that history today.

The best time for a trip to the Alamo is anytime from April to October. For best results, go in April—before it gets too hot for the summer.

Big Bend National Park

Big Bend National Park

Big Bend is a national park on the far west side of Texas. It's a site that runs along the Rio Grande and includes massive canyons, vast deserts, an ever-changing river, and forested mountains.

Hike Saint Elena Canyon, visit the hot springs, make the Ross Maxwell scenic drive, and even cross over the border into Mexico via a ride on a horse, donkey, or vehicle for a one-mile journey into the village of Boquillas Crossing. It's an interesting little village with plenty of restaurants and history to offer.

The Texas State Capitol In Austin

It's also widely recognized as one of America's most interesting and beautiful state capitols.

Guadalupe National Park is most definitely the place to go if you're interested in hiking, camping, or visiting the mountains. You can see mountains, canyons, dunes, deserts, and spectacular vistas at this park. It also contains the world's most extensive Permian fossil reef and the four highest peaks in Texas.

Galveston Beach

Galveston Beach will have something to offer regardless of what you're looking for in a beach (a good time with friends, a family-friendly vacation spot, natural outdoor recreation, etc.). Galveston Island contains 32 glorious miles of coastline. Along this coastline, you'll find a number of different beaches that'll offer additional amenities and beach-going experiences.

If you want to get away from the city's hustle and enjoy beautiful, warm, sandy beaches, this is probably a location that you'll thoroughly enjoy exploring.

Note: Some people love the idea of smoking their cannabis on the beach in Galveston. Just be aware that in Texas, you need a Medical Marijuana card to enjoy your ‘green’ legally. You can visit https://dr-weedy.com/texas/ and apply for one today!

Natural Bridge Caverns

Natural Bridge Caverns

Natural Bridge Caverns is a massive cave system comprising illuminating passages and beautiful rock formations. Discovered in 1960 by four college students, the cave is the largest commercial cavern in Texas. Its most notable feature is a 60ft natural limestone slab bridge that stretches the amphitheater setting of the cavern's entrance.

Open daily; this cave is located near San Antonio. The deepest part of the cave that's available for the public tour is 180 feet below the surface—though there are also areas beneath the 'tour' section that reach depths of up to 230 feet.

The USS Lexington Museum

The USS Lexington Museum, located on the Bay near Corpus Christi, is a retired World War 2 vintage aircraft carrier. This aircraft carrier, commissioned in 1943, served the U.S. for longer than any other carrier in the history of naval aviation. It has also set more records than any other carrier in history.

It was decommissioned in 1991 and is now stationed near the bay and open for tours and special events.

The San Antonio RiverWalk
