Summer is right around the corner. Sure, some may feel a hint of dread associated with the inevitable heat. But the Texas summer also inspires eager anticipation for vacations, late sunsets, and a plethora of water recreation. Here are 12 terrific travel ideas to make this your best summer ever.
It’s all about water when it comes to surviving—and dare we say relishing—the Texas summer. Our state is home to numerous refreshing swimming holes that beckon when the swelter takes over.

With impressive science, history, and art attractions, Corpus Christi keeps tourists plenty busy. And to top it off, there’s the beach! This combination makes for a great getaway especially with kids.
