We’re going to talk today about some of the things that it makes sense for you to spend your time on when you’re in Texas, so read on and learn more.

Walk Along San Antonio River

Taking a walk along the San Antonio River is one of the most relaxing and peaceful things you can do in Texas. It’s something you can do during the day or at night. There are lots of riverside bars and restaurants, so there’s a lot going on in the evenings along the San Antonio River, so you might want to save this activity for the evening of your trip.

Take a Dip in Hamilton Pool

Hamilton Pool is a natural swimming hole, and you should definitely pay it a visit, especially if you’re traveling to Texas during a hot summer. There’s nothing better than taking a dip in the cool natural water with the waterfall in the background on a hot summer’s day when you need to get the heat off your skin. Be sure to give it a try.

Explore Big Bend National Park

Big Bend National Park is one of the best natural landscapes to explore in Texas. So when you find yourself in the state, make some time to explore it. You can go hiking there, and you can also find a spot to camp if you like. The three canyons found in the park, Mariscal, Boquillas, and Santa Elena, are definitely worth checking out.

The Great Tex-Mex Food

Finding a good Tex-Mex restaurant isn’t hard to do in Texas, and you should be sure to visit a few of them while you’re in the Lone Star State. Try as much of it as you can; don’t waste your time in generic fast-food restaurants because there’s so much local cuisine to enjoy. If you want one tip, I’d recommend the Texas chili bowl; nothing beats it.

Visit Houston Space Center

If you have any interest in space and space exploration, you definitely need to pay a visit to Houston Space Center. It’s the kind of place that’s truly awe-inspiring and truly fascinating. It’s particularly good for kids who are just learning about science and the universe at school as they can see the spacecraft and the history right in front of them here. It’s not just kids that’ll be entertained here though.

As you can see, there’s no shortage of things to do and spend your time on when you’re in Texas. So be sure to make the most of everything the state has to offer. You won’t be disappointed by the experiences offered above, and these ideas are just the tip of the iceberg.
