With a natural landscape, curved path, little creek and new playground, Limestone Quarry is a perfect for playing with young children. Wander along and enjoy the tall grasses while the kids are equally entertained. My favorite part is the native...

A year after someone suggested I try Potager (French for little vegetable garden) Cafe, I finally made it tonight and had one of the most fulfilling meals of my life. My boyfriend and I strolled by sunflowers and into a haven of natural light and...

Hike down past these trees and by the emerald water below to find a baby waterfall. Pedernales State Park also boasts a larger waterfall, swimming areas, fossils, and hiking. Unfortunately, I only managed a short stop there during a family trip,...
Comal River, New Braunfels, TX 78130, USA
South of Austin, North of San Antonio. The ultimate Summertime thing to do. It is said to be the shortest river in the United States. Grab your friends, pack a cooler , rent your tube (I recommend jumping in at Landa Falls - google for info). And...

The Hamilton Pool, this beautiful collapsed grotto, is a perfect place to go when needing to chill in some cold water. Linger in the pool and enjoy the clouds gliding across the sky and the cooling sight of water trickling down from the trees...

Look. I’ll admit it. I’m generally a sucker for any place whose marketing campaign prominently displays words like “craft” and “artisanal” and “scratch” and “local” and paints their sign on a cinderblock wall. So when Hopdoddy’s marketing gurus...
