Reviews of Fun Things to Do in Texas

Blog posts listed here cover activites we have enjoyed.

The Bullock Museum
When you are in Austin, be sure to set several hours aside to visit the Bullock Texas State History Museum. Opened in 2001, this museum houses an impressive collection of Texas artifacts: from the reproduction skeleton of a French explorer who found himself stranded in the Gulf of Mexico to the original 2,000 pound iron Goddess of Liberty who topped the Capitol Building until 1985 when she was replaced by a replica. Here you see everything from Stephen F Austin's gun to Babe Zaharias' golf putter. If you are a Texan or interested in Texas history, put this on your list of Must Sees!...  [Read the full post]
One of the activities we enjoy while camping is geocaching. It has been a great way for us to discover some pretty unique and interesting places that we would not have known existed if a geocache hadn't drawn our attention. Would you ever think that feral chickens would rule the roost on a residential street in Bastrop, Texas? We sure wouldn't, but they definitely do...  [Read the full post]
Goliad Brewing Company
Opened in 2014, the Goliad Brewing Company is a small, family owned, craft brewery that strives to capture the independent spirit of South Texas. Their property sits just north of the town of Goliad and is only a 5 to 10 minute drive from Goliad State Park and Historic Site. They offer brewery tours every Saturday along with live music in their outdoor beer garden...  [Read the full post]
La King's Confectionery
Located in a building constructed in the mid-1800s on the Historic Galveston Strand, La King's Confectionery is a MUST VISIT for us every time we go to Galveston, Texas. A trip through their doors is a step back in time with a functioning soda fountain that dates to the 1920s, Texas' original ice cream, and a candy making kitchen that uses 19th century techniques and equipment from more than a century ago...[Read the full post]
Dickens on the Strand
Since 1974, the Historic Galveston Strand transforms back to Victorian times one weekend each year as the island celebrates the Christmas Holidays with Dickens on the Strand. Parades, live entertainment, vendors and bed races are among the fun. Come on now, where else can you see bed races?!? This is a fun family-friendly festival with some fantastic people watching...[Read the full post]
Texas State Railroad
The early 1900s steam engine blows its whistle twice, the train bell clangs, and you pass by the water tower as you depart the station. As you hear the clickety-clack of the wheels on the tracks and feel the motion of the railcar, you are experiencing a little piece of life as it was a century ago. This is no movie, and this is certainly no miniature train. You are riding in an authentic, restored 1920s railcar along the Texas State Railroad!...  [Read the full post]
Dell Diamond
We're big sports fans and enjoy watching all levels of baseball. So on our list of things to do is visit all of the professional baseball parks in Texas. While we were in Austin, we were lucky enough to catch a game at Dell Diamond in Round Rock, Texas...Dell Diamond, home of the Round Rock Express, was built in 2000. It's a very fan-friendly ballpark...  [Read the full post]
Wolff Stadium
As Native Houstonians, we've been to San Antonio many times over the years. San Antonio has so many options for travelers to see and do: the Alamo, the Riverwalk, SeaWorld, Fiesta Texas, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, all kinds of museums... the list can seem endless. But this summer, we began our quest to visit all of the minor league baseball parks in Texas, so we had to make time for a game at "The Wolff". And we are glad that we did!...  [Read the full post]
