5 Things To Do For Spring Break in Texas

This is the second Spring Break in Texas that hasn’t played out how we expected it would, and it’s been a headache trying to incorporate the new essential precautions we must take in 2021. Even if we can’t pack the river with our friends and family – and their friends and families – there’s still plenty of possibilities for the family to escape the monotonous indoors.

Whether you’re an explorer at heart or in need of uninterrupted relaxation, the perfect destination is the wide-open ranches of the Texas Hill Country. Aside from the therapeutic views, there’s a whole list of fun stuff to add to your Spring Break itinerary.
