We are Brave Family Adventures and we LOVE living in the great state of Texas! One of our most favorite family trips was a 15-day road trip through our beautiful state. On this trip we saw 13 State Parks, 1 National Recreation Area - Amistad, and 1 National Park - Big Bend. Our boys slid down waterfalls, swam in crystal clear rivers, and hiked through deep canyons. We started and ended where we live in Rockwall (near Dallas) but this trip can start in any corner of the state!
I’m excited to share some highlights our family weekend trip to Boerne, TX, just 45 minutes north of San Antonio. It’s an amazing Texas town fueled by German roots. Whether you’re just wanting to walk along the beautiful Cibolo Trail, explore a caves, or just kick back to enjoy a local brew, Boerne has it all and more!
If you want to combine a trip to pick fresh flowers and exploring a State Park, this is your itinerary for a family road trip. Pilot Point is conveniently located approximately 2.5 hours north of Waco, and about 1 hour & 15 minutes north of DFW. It makes a fun, easy day trip with kids & provides some beautiful photo opportunities.
Most people have heard of the Grand Canyon. However, the second largest canyon in the United States lies in the heart of the Texas Panhandle. It's called The Palo Duro Canyon. It's just five hours from our home in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Blue hole park is a scenic lagoon by the limestone bluffs along the San Gabriel River. The Park is open from 5 AM to 10 PM and it is free to enter. The Park offers walking trails, and spots for fishing. There are some picnic areas, and restrooms are well maintained.
