Arlington or San Antonio are the best choices for amusement parks and attractions ranging from a tour of Cowboy Stadium to the Wax Museum to lots of amusement parks (Fiesta Texas and Sea World in San Antonio, Six Flags in Arlington) – you’ll find plenty of choices for close by lodging ranging from RV parks to resorts to economy hotels

it doesn’t get much better than playing in the waterparks on a hot summer day and Texas offers plenty of choices and some of the rides and chutes are a real thrill. Schlitterbahn has several waterpark locations (Galveston, South Padre, and New Braunfels) and is probably the best and biggest, most major cities have smaller splash or water parks, and Great Wolf Lodge is the ultimate lodge and waterpark combo

Train Rides

the younger kids will enjoy a ride on a vintage train and most have some the Holiday rides (Peanuts, Pumpkin Patch, Holiday Express) that are enjoyable. Make it a camping weekend and stay at the Texas State Railroad RV Park which is adjacent to the Rusk train depot

Tubing or Rafting

on a hot summer day, it doesn’t get much better than tubin’ down, or just playing in, one of the many beautiful Texas rivers. The shortest river in Texas (the Comal River in San Marcos) is suitable for all ages including the younger kids (our 3 and 5 year grand kids loved it), the lower Guadalupe River below Canyon Lake is best know for the crowds and parties on the river, and the Frio River is good for everyone. Make it a weekend and camp, stay in a cabin, or a nearby hotel – Frio Country Resort has lots of options if you plan on tubing the Frio.

Ride a Zip Line
