Summer In Texas Is The Perfect Time For Cool Adventures

Texas Highways’ July cover story features the Panhandle’s Caprock Canyons Trailway—a 64- mile trail system that offers hikers, cyclists and equestrians an opportunity to explore the historic path of a former rail line.

In “San Marcos Springs Eternal,” writer Joe Nick Patoski finds kayaking the cool, clear waters of Spring Lake at Aquarena Center a welcome respite from the sweltering summer. Glass-bottom boat rides and hiking trails are just some of the eco-friendly ways to enjoy the natural beauty of the springs.

Other summer adventures featured in the latest issue of the official travel magazine of Texas include: quilter’s art showcased at the Texas Quilt Museum in La Grange; the lure of barbecue and watermelons in Luling; the urban gardens of Dallas; the Great Texas Balloon Race in Longview; the Old West charm of Saint Jo; and a touching tribute to longtime Texas Highways contributor Howard Peacock.

The July issue is on sale now at newsstands around the state. Or, order online at www.texashighways.com.
