Nearby Weekend Escapes For The Adventurous!

With school back in session, week-long adventures will be limited, but that doesn’t mean you can't plan a vacation until the kids’ next holiday break. Here are a handful of awesome places you should take your family for a weekend getaway without breaking the budget or spending the entire weekend on the road.

1. Corpus Christi

Plan a weekend getaway in your own backyard. Totem Pole RV Park is only 30 minutes from all that Corpus Christi has to offer. From the USS Lexington to the Texas State Aquarium to the Harbor Playhouse to Padre Island to catching a game at the Whataburger Field, there is plenty to do! Taking the weekend to relax and spend time with your kiddos just thirty minutes from home is a fabulous idea!

2. San Antonio

Experience San Antonio like never before. San Antonio offers the San Antonio River Walk, the San Antonio Zoo, the Pearl Brewery, the Alamo, the Natural Bridge Caverns and the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch. The two hour drive to San Antonio is well worth the memories you will create over this fun-filled weekend. Start planning your weekend getaway.

3. New Braunfels

If you’ve never been to New Braunfels, now is the time to go! This neat towns offers both outdoor and indoor activities for everyone in the family. Looking for a place to swim other than the Corpus Christi Lake? Enjoy the opportunity to play in the Comal River, the Canyon Lake or the Schlitterbahn Waterpark! Alongside the water activities, New Braunfels also offers unique things like the Stars and Stripes Drive-In Theater, Downtown Antique Mall, Gruene Dance Hall and many delicious eateries!

4. Concan

Now this might be THE vacation trip everyone is talking about during summer, but going after the summer months is just as rewarding. Garner State Park is definitely not as crowded, but still offers the beautiful views and trails in the hill country. The obvious attraction is the swimming holes at Gardner State Park, but there is plenty of opportunities that don’t include water. Awesome things to do in Concan include the Frio Bat Flight Tour, 18-hole golf course and great restaurants on the water!

So whether you are planning on spending the weekend in Corpus or wanting to drive a few hours to find something new, the great state of Texas offers many ideal vacation spots! Just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean you can’t still plan a family vacation. Use the time you have with your kiddos and make awesome memories with them!
