Motorhome trip through Texas for fun
RVing is a fun and safe way to spend time outdoors, see the countryside, and still enjoy some of the comforts of home. Now is the perfect time to take a motorhome trip to Texas. For much of the year, the weather in Texas is pleasant. Like anywhere on earth, there are occasional patches of rain, cold, or bad weather. In general, Texas is a place you can visit all year long. You don’t have to be a tourist to enjoy traveling around Texas in your RV.
Motorhome trips turn road trips into fun adventures filled with great scenery, food, and lots of excitement. What makes RVing in Texas so much fun? Well, for starters, plan to visit as many state parks as your schedule allows. Just for fun, why not forget about your travel itinerary and go with the flow? State parks are definitely “bigger” and “better” in Texas. Texas is home to more than 120 state parks, and be sure to check out other natural historic sites in the state.
State parks allow travelers to park their RV for a few nights or a couple of days. Or if you also tow your car with your RV, you can stay at the campground as long as you like. Most Texas state parks offer campgrounds with electrical and water hookups. If you’re not much into the outdoors, you’re in luck. The parks also offer excellent lodging facilities for those who simply want to park their RVs. If you’re traveling to a state park like Yellowstone in the off-season, there are smaller crowds and you’ll feel like you have a private sanctuary. There are so many fun things to do in Texas, if you’re not a nature lover and walking in the great outdoors doesn’t suit your tastes.
Next stop, follow the wine route. Texas has some of the best wine producers in the country. Harvest time is usually in late fall, and you can plan to spend the entire day sampling fine wine or nibbling on bread and cheese on the wine trails.
If you’re traveling to Texas during the holiday season, don’t forget to head to the Texas Hill Country to see the Regional Christmas Lightning Trail. Texas Hill is located approximately 1 mile north of Johnson City, Texas. The Christmas tree lighting season begins on November 20. You can travel in your RV every night along this trail of Christmas lights and delights, with more than 300,000 lights. Go for the lights, but plan to stay a few nights to enjoy nearby art galleries, restaurants featuring Texas-sized portions on the menu, and an abundance of unique boutiques and shops.
RVing throughout Texas is a great way to enjoy wonderful sightseeing opportunities and travel along scenic highways, without having to worry about lodging. Unless you want to otherwise, RVs make Texas an idyllic travel destination.
Another fun thing about RVing in Texas is that you can create your own adventures, instead of sticking to a planned sightseeing tour.
