The legendary site of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre in Bastrop, Texas is open for nightly visitors. In 2016, The Texas Gas Station refurbished four rustic cabins on its site for Texas's most risk-taking guests to spend the night in. If you're looking for the perfect place to scare your pants off, booking a cabin here is the way to go.
Texas has its fair share of scary stories and urban legends that are passed down from generation to generation. Most myths are based on actual locations in the Lone Star state, bringing huge crowds of locals to visit rumored ghost and murder sites. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is undeniably the most renowned scary story, having been made into a multitude of cult-classic movies.
If you think you could survive a night out in the middle of nowhere on the site of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you can book your room on the Gas Station's website. There are four rustic cabins available that sleep up to 3 adults at a time, or 2 adults and 2 children. The spooky cabins go for $129.00 per night for a single night and $110.00 per night for two or more nights. You can also stay at The Gas Station on their camping grounds in a tent, up to 3 guests per tent, for $55 a night.
Stay in a cabin and watch horror movies all night or pull an all-nighter and tell scary Texas stories in a tent on the campground. It's the coolest, new spot in Texas to get scared out of your mind!
If you love the horror classics but can't stand the idea of sleeping in a rustic cabin at the site of the massacre, the Gas Station also sells killer BBQ for daytime visitors. Brisket, sausage, and chopped beef are on the menu at the chilling location. There's also merchandise and Texas Chainsaw memorabilia available for all horror fans.
Willie Nelson is calling on President Joe Biden to make "4/20" — a day many use to celebrate the consumption of marijuana — an official national holiday.
Nelson, in collaboration with his Luck Reunion team, launched a petition to help declare the nine days spanning April 20-29 the official "High Holidays," with the last day of celebration falling on the country music star's birthday.
"We believe that recognition of the 'High Holidays' opens the door to much-needed dialogue supporting the many benefits of cannabis while helping to remove the unjustified stigmas currently surrounding this amazing plant," the team wrote to President Biden.
The petition, which asks supporters to "please puff, puff, and pass this to your friends in Congress for consideration," has a goal of getting 2,500 signatures and it has already received nearly 2,400 as of Tuesday, April 20 at 4 p.m. EST.
