The leaves are (very slowly) starting to change color and with that, the glorious cooler weather comes into play. What better way to enjoy this cooler weather than to get outside and discover all the beautiful sights Texas has to offer. Tyler State Park in Tyler, Texas has amazing views and tons of trails to hike.
The park has a $6 daily entry fee for all its adult guests. From a 64-acre spring-fed lake that visitors can canoe on to 13 miles of trails in the pinewoods that will transport you to a foresty wonderland, this park will keep you entertained for hours. You'll also find benches scattered around the woods so you can really immerse yourself into the nature around you. Did we mention, you can even go boating!
Camping sites at the park start at just $18 and work their way up to about $30. There's also an option to rent cabins which run at about $55 a night and sleep, two people. We say this could be a perfect, romantic, weekend getaway. The cabins come equipped with heating and airconditioning to work all year round.
Stop by the park from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., any day of the week. Their busy season is from March until Thanksgiving, but with tons of room to explore you'll feel like the only person there.
Texas is truly a nature lover's paradise so if that's you, check out Caddo Lake State Park where you can feel a spooky vibe year-round. There's also Caprock where visitors are free to hangout with Bison.
