Texas is an amazing spot for a summer vacation. Whether you want to camp in a state park or tube down a river, Texas is a hot spot for outdoor adventure. From Big Bend National Park to Lake Travis, Texas has you covered if it’s fun in the sun you crave this summer. So grab your sunscreen (with a decent SPF- the Texas sun can be unrelenting in the warm months!) and your sense of adventure and let’s hit up the Lone Star State!
With multiple large metro areas peppered throughout one of the US’s largest states, Texas has a lot of great destinations for an action-packed getaway. The Houston metro area, located in the southeast part of the state, is only about an hour from the Gulf Coast and offers a myriad of activities for travelers of all types. On Houston’s northwest side you’ll stumble upon Conroe, an exciting city with lots of fun to offer guests of all ages and large lake with lots of engaging water activities. If you are searching for a sweet spot for a summer getaway, let’s look at some of the reasons you should consider spending some time this summer on Lake Conroe.
