AustinIf you live in Texas and have never been to Austin, you really should go! Only a three and a half hour drive from Fort Worth, Austin is not only one of the largest cities in the country, it is also one of the best!

Being a college town, some people think that it is only for young adults or college kids. If you let yourself think that, you will be missing out on all of the great attractions Austin has to offer. For starters, Austin is full of amazingly beautiful lakes and parks. If you are looking to take advantage of the great outdoors, make sure you stop by Lady Bird Lake or the Barton Springs Pool. Both have amazing scenery and feature tons of activities you can do with you or your family.

If you are looking for entertainment and shopping, look no further than historic Sixth Street. Pretty much anything you could want is on Sixth street. Breweries, restaurants, shops, entertainment venues, all of it! You could make an entire trip just off of sixth street alone!

If you want to camp in Austin, we recommend Pecan Grove RV park. This park has everything you need to set up camp while also providing a beautiful scenery.
