Texas Spring Break Destinations


Located about 70 miles outside of Houston in Sheridan, this fun {and crazy clean} water park has options for the RVers or for families who want to stay onsite in a cabin or cottage for their Texas Spring Break. Water gun fights, outdoor movies, s’mores, and more. You don’t have to do the water park, but you definitely want to sit back and star gaze into the big night sky.

College Station

Make the short drive out to Aggieland Safari. This wildlife sanctuary doubles as a drive-thru safari and zoo! Make it a day trip or take your time enjoying a few days in B/CS. Aggieland is a fun place to visit!

Lake Travis

Venture out a little further for your Texas Spring Break and enjoy the beauty of Lake Travis. Try Lake Travis Zipline Adventures for 3-hour zipline tours as well as a private beach with hammocks to unwind. You can also check out Volente Beach for more water park fun and lakeside swimming. Hiking/biking enthusiasts can check out Pace Bend Park; no doubt the littles will have plenty of space here to run out their energy.

New Braunfels

The great outdoors, grilling by the water, and even a few wineries for the parents – this area has fun for all ages. Stop into Gruene and listen to some country jams. Or, journey deep into the caverns at Natural Bridge Caverns. The warmer weather may follow you, but the humidity will not! This area has so much to offer – including floating the river if the time is right.

Glen Rose

Keep on going towards the Fort Worth area where you can explore Dinosaur Valley State Park. Stay in the state park or look into other unique accommodations like Dinosaur Valley RV or Country Woods Inn. Make sure to take your explorers into the park to track down the dinosaurs! Other kid-friendly activities include the drive-thru safari, Fossil Rim. After feeding the animals, feed yourself some old-fashioned ice cream at the Shoo-Fly Soda Sop – from banana splits to malts, your sweet tooth will thank you.

We would love to hear your Texas Spring Break plans and what cool Texas spots you plan to see. Share your vacations with us – we are all ready for a road trip!
