Super Fun Texas Things To Do During COVID If You Can't Sit On Your Couch Anymore

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned many Texans into couch potatoes, due to the fact that most fun things to do aren't quite as accessible as they normally are.

This list will show you some of the most fun Texas things to do that are both pandemic-friendly and active.

Ukuleles and even some guitars can be very affordable and keep you busy for hours on end. Youtube has an endless amount of instrument tutorial videos ranging from beginner to expert. For the full Texas experience, you have to learn acoustic guitar and just about every George Strait song there is.

Why You Need To Try: What better way to get of the house than to use that time to clear your mind and enjoy some yoga?
