I don’t know about you, but after a hard week of work (actually, as soon as the week starts) I’m ready to hit the road and enjoy another weekend. If the weekend isn’t already planned, I use Texas Outside to help us find an area to explore and enjoy a weekend adventure that involves some combination of multiple activities including: camping, biking, boating, golfing, music festivals, hiking, cruising, touring, restaurants, and more. We try to cram as many activities into the weekend as we possibly can. Which means on Monday, it’s really hard to drag our sunburned, tired, and sore body into work! Having done this in Texas since 1980, we have gone through four RVs, a sailboat, three ski boats, and multiple bikes, golf clubs, tennis racquets, walking sticks, and Frisbees – the good news is that we haven’t worn out or replaced the knees, elbows, or other body parts.
Thank God For Weekends will provide you with an overview of our activities for that weekend. You might also check out our Weekend Adventures - loaded with articles about fun weekend adventures in Texas.
Christmas on an Island - Seguin - we had a fun weekend that started with an overnight stay in a tipi and included enjoying a trail of lights on a small well decorated island (Christmas on the Island), a couple good meals, and a fun round of golf.
A Fun Advent rue Packed Weekend in Frisco - I was pooped after competing with the grandkids in arcade games, bowling, bumper cars, and laser tag at PINSTACK but they still had plenty of energy after that plus the ropes course, indoor skydiving, several fun hours in the National Videogame Museum and the Sci-Tech Discovery Center plus swim practice and a swim meet as well as a baseball game.
A Three Day Weekend in Austin - read about a fun three days in Austin with a visit to Barton Springs and Krause Springs, kayaking and paddleboading, some local craft beer at a couple breweries, some good food, a hike in Barton Creek greenbelt, and several other fun things.
A Fun Weekend in Waco at the Waco Zoo & BSR Wakeboard Park - we spent a morning exploring Cameron Park Zoo and it's 1700 animals encompassing over 300 species and an exciting afternoon at Waco's BSR Wakeboard Park riding a wakeboard, floating down the world's longest lazy river, and several trips zooming down a very thrilling slide into a lake.
Exploring Wimberley, Driftwood, and Dripping Springs - before the music started at the 3 day Old Settler's Music Festival we had a good time playing golf, shopping (one of us had a good time, the other had a couple cold beers), eating some good BBQ, and sipping wine, rum, and craft beer.
We got the opportunity, and jumped at it, to take advantage of a Special Offer from Rock Creek Resort to tour their property, play a round of golf on the 18 hole Jack Nicklaus designed course, stay in a house overnight, and enjoy some meals in the Rock Creek Resort restaurant. The house was great, the food was good, the golf course is one of our top ranked private courses, and the amenities are enjoyable.
