Things You Need to Do in Texas This Spring

Go see some bluebonnets.  And obviously you have to take pictures in them…especially of the kids/grandkids or your pets.  There are some just down the street from my house by the mailboxes.  Which is super convenient.  We noticed that the bluebonnets had bloomed over the weekend.

Go pick some Texas fruit.  Peaches and strawberries are the big ones.

Along the same lines, go pick dewberries.  Picking dewberries is like a rite of passage for every Texas kid, and no childhood is complete without it. Dewberries are largely a foraging fruit, and are not generally commercially grown, so you have to go in search of them yourself. They’ll be ripe in May, so head out into nature and enjoy the fruits of your labors.

Go camping.  There are SO many places to go.  You can go super-rustic or even “glamp” which is my preferred situation.

Go to a rodeo.  The San Antonio Rodeo and Houston Rodeo are already over, but then, you probably went.

Go to a zoo.  Texas has some absolutely stellar zoos. The San Antonio Zoo, the Houston Zoo, and the Fort Worth Zoo are just a few across the state that offer incredible exhibits and family-friendly activities that will keep you entertained all day long.

Go antiquing.  Antique stores are EVERYWHERE!  There are whole towns that are committed to it, like Comfort.  The Round Top Antiques Fair is coming up at the end of this month for the die-hard antiquers (PS. my mom is a vendor there at Coles, one of the many buildings there), but you can visit antique shops any time this Spring all over Texas, especially in Brenham and Gruene.

Go hiking somewhere beautiful.  Not only is it good exercise, there are some spectacular photo ops.  Plus, there are plenty of places right here in SA.

Go have a picnic.  There’s nothing more relaxing than getting out into nature with a picnic lunch.
