Top 10 Texas Day Trips to Take This Fall

1.Lost Maples State Natural Area- This is the perfect place to roll out the sleeping bags. It’s also a hidden gem if you’re only planning to set up camping chairs and enjoy a daytime fall picnic. Just be sure you take a thermos of warm apple cider in case the sun starts to set and you’re not quite ready to head home.


2.Luckenbach, Texas- If you like to listen to music outside, this one is for you!


3.Climb to the Lighthouse at Palo Duro Canyon State Park- Home of the second largest canyon in the country, you can hike the canyon, enjoy a picnic, or even ride horseback.


4.Play a Round of Golf in San Saba- Play a morning round of golf, then enjoy the river, wineries, shopping and a boutique hotel if you can’t yet pull yourself away in a day.


5.Fish for Striped Bass on Lake Texoma- If you’ve never taken a guided fishing tour on Lake Texoma, you might want to move this experience up a notch or two on your bucket list.


6.Tour the LBJ Ranch- If you like history, you’ll love the experience of walking in the footsteps of Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th President of the United States.


7.Get a Jump on Your Christmas Shopping in The Woodlands- When the temperatures get a little cooler, and that fall feel is in the air, you know what that really means, right? Christmas is right around the corner!


8.Completely Relax on the San Antonio Riverwalk- What goes better with fall than a leisurely ride down a river, and then sitting outside for a relaxing dinner?


9.Taste Texas Wine- With almost 500 established wineries here in the Lone Star State, having a chance to visit each one might actually be a stretch, even for an adventurer like me. But plotting out two or three at a time and taking a Texas day trip every now and then to see them is certainly doable.


10.Pick a Pumpkin at Assiter’s in Floydada- There are plenty of places to pick a pumpkin in Texas, but if you can make it up to Floydada, the Pumpkin Capital of the World, that’s really the place to do it.
