It might make you sad to hear it, but the summer is quickly drawing to a close. If you have kids, you probably have already started back-to-school shopping. However, before the school year officially starts, try one or more of these Texas day trips.
This is one of the best surviving military sites from the Indians Wars era of the late 1800s. This fort was in operation from 1854 to 1891. Visitors can tour many of the restored buildings.
Fort Worth Stockyards
Twice every day, you can watch live cow herding at the Fort Worth Stockyards. In addition, every Friday and Saturday night there is a fun-filled rodeo.
Palo Duro Canyon
This beautiful red rock canyon is often called the “second Grand Canyon.” The park is open every day from 7am-10pm. There are campsites available for a longer stay.
Dinosaur Valley State Park
Walk in the footsteps of giants with a visit to Dinosaur Valley State Park. Follow the river to find the dinosaur tracks. You can also go horseback riding, camping, find a geocache, go for a swim, or catch some fish.
Here at Midland Buick GMC Cadillac, we hope you have a great end to your summer and an even better start to the school year.
