Day trips in Texas

Texas Day Trips

Getting the summertime blues? Take a day trip, get out and experience some of the amazing sights that Texas has to offer. Here are our top three picks for day trips in Texas.

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

In 1982, former first lady Lady Bird Johnson founded a center to protect and celebrate the native plants of North America. Visit the Wildflower Center and check out the amazing natural landscapes, and the diverse collection of native flowers and plants.

Visit a dude ranch

Texas excels in dude ranches, where you can sign up for a horseback trip through the back country, eat some amazing grub, and even spend the night if you want to make a weekend of it. It’s the perfect way to kick back and relax!

Swim Krause Springs

This natural spring offers some of the best camping and swimming in Texas. The privately owned property is listed on the National Registry of Historical Sites, and offers 32 springs as well as a campground, a butterfly garden, and more.
