Getting away on vacation with the family is priceless. Of course, the getting there costs, but the memories you get to make are something money can’t buy. But what happens when you get a little less excited about your family trip? If you tend to do the same thing each year why not try and change things up a little? This is why I thought it would be a great opportunity to share with you some alternative ideas. Hopefully suiting your family’s interests.
Texas is the second largest state in the US and has a lot to offer families. With many things to see and do I thought it would be great to share with you some destinations that might suit your family. Who knows it may inspire you to book your next vacation there.
The outdoor adventure family
Are you and your family more of the adventurous type? Enjoying hiking excursions, biking adventures and camping under the stars. Then heading to western Texas could be the perfect destination for you. The Big Bend National Park is a great alternative to heading to a city or a beach. It has a lot to offer and could be the perfect place to flex those camping skills.
The cultural family
Perhaps your family is more into history and Culture. Then look no further than Dallas. This modern city has everything from arts and history museums to a theater district. If history is something that interests you, then head over to Dealey Plaza. You could witness the spot where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. There’re lots on offer in this vast city.
The music loving family
If music’s your thing, then Austin is the place to go. Not only is is the capital of Texas but it’s also known as the live music capital of the world. No matter what music is your ideal, there will be a live music venue waiting for you to explore. It has some amazing opportunities and would suit a musical family.
The city loving family
If you’re all about the fancy restaurants and the skyscraper buildings, then look no further than heading to Houston. Not only is it the place where the filming industry plant’s it’s routes, but it’s also where NASA is based. The astronaut training facility is in Houston, and you could take a tour round. There is plenty to see and do and with it being the largest city in Texas, you won’t be short of things to see.
The relaxed family
If you and your family have a more relaxed vibe than San Antonio is the place for you. Soak in the Spanish atmosphere and take the famous river walk. Stop along the way to people watch and enjoy the restaurants and cafes on offer. Being so close to the Mexico border this city has a great culture to it, so it’s a well diverse city that would suit many family vacations.
I hope this has inspired you to consider Texas for your next family vacation.
