On this upcoming Labor Day weekend, what better way to spend the three-day break then heading out on a fun Texas road trip? Here are three perfect ways to explore the Lone Star State that make the most out of your Labor Day weekend.
1) Float the Frio River
While the Guadalupe River is nice, the Frio River is beautiful. The river is 47 miles long and full of pristine and natural beauty. The water is crystal clear and on the cool side, which makes it feel very refreshing during the summer. For tube rentals and lodging, look in towns like Concan and Leakey for quaint places to stay and access points to float the river.
2) Stay on Lake Travis
Labor Day weekend is one of the last weekends to enjoy some water fun before the end of the calendar year. This makes renting a home or condo on Lake Travis a perfect road trip for water lovers. There is a wide variety of places to rent ranging in price and location on the lake.
3) Tour the “Texas Grand Canyon.”
For those looking for something besides water fun, a road trip to the Palo Duro Canyon State Park may be just the vacation for you. Nicknamed the “Texas Grand Canyon,” it’s the second largest canyon in the nation after the Grand Canyon. There are countless activities to choose from like hiking, biking, horseback riding, geocaching, birdwatching, and last but not least, the outdoor musical TEXAS. In terms of lodging, visitors can choose to camp or stay in a cabin located on the canyon’s rim or on the canyon floor.
Whatever you decide to do on Labor Day weekend, we at First Choice Power hope your family is safe and happy on your Texas road trip!
