With Fall just around the corner, this is the time of year RVers start dreaming about. The weather is getting cooler and that RV bucket list isn’t empty itself. The time to start your planning should have been last month, but I’ll cut you a little slack. So, where do you start? For me, if I’ve ever said, “I’ve always wanted to…” that was a pretty good indication that it’s probably going to be a good bucket list item. Now things like going to the Grand Canyon or camping in Yellowstone or finding the World’s Largest Ball of Aluminum Foil are all perfectly good bucket list items. However, did you know that the amount of things to see and do right here in Texas you quickly fill your bucket 100 times over? From festivals, fairs, football and more, Texas has destination locations perfect for the Fall camping season.
Here’s a nice video I found done by an RVer in regards to how he feels about how to empty your RV bucket list.
So, where exactly can you go in Texas? You can head up to Dallas. Fall is the time of year when things really start picking up in North Texas. For one thing, the Texas State Fair kicks off complete with carnival, games, rides, fried foods, a car expo, football games, live music. Just about any type of entertainment you want can be found in the DFW area in Fall: SMU & TCU football games, the Dallas Cowboys, The Red River Rivalry… and that’s just football! Trust me, you can’t do it all in one trip.
Of course, there are other great places to visit and things to do as well. Austin is a Texas hub of entertainment and seat of our State Government. The festivals like Austin City Limits Music fest and The Austin Film Fest are just two of a multitude of fests in the area. Of course, the Texas hill country is at it’s most beautiful this time of year with a myriad of colors on display.
What about Marfa, Salado, Caddo Lake? There really are so many wonderful things to do and see, It’s a wonder why I ever leave this great state to vacation.
