Living in Prosper, TX in the master-planned community of Windsong Ranch presents great opportunities to travel. Windsong Ranch is just a road trip away from some of Texas’ most beautiful places and is conveniently located just 2.5 miles from the Dallas North Tollway for quick access to DFW’s major highways. Here are some of the best Texas weekend road trips for you and your family!
About 4 hours from Dallas, Hamilton Pool is located in Dripping Springs, Texas. It is one of the most beautiful sights and popular summer spots Texas has to offer. Due to the growing popularity of the pool, it costs around $26 to get in. Hamilton Pool is normally booked out 2 weeks in advance, so make sure you reserve your spot soon!
Located only 3 hours and 15 minutes from Dallas in Knox County, The Narrows is a relatively hidden spot. The pools are accessible by a lengthy hike or kayaking trip and while the journey to get there has been described as long, it is worth it!
Palo Duro Canyon State Park
Palo Duro Canyon State Park is the second largest canyon in the United States and is located 5 hours from Dallas in the Texas Panhandle. Visitors have said that the canyon has dramatic color and is purely amazing! The daily entrance cost is just $5 per person and children 12 and under get in free. Whether your family is looking for a hiking trip, a horse riding getaway or a relaxing vacation with gorgeous views, Palo Duro Canyon State Park has everything you need!
This one is great for the kids – exotic animals, nature and only an hour and a half away from Dallas, what could be better? Fossil Rim is a wildlife center that is often compared to that of an African safari – drive your own car through the wildlife center and witness a range of endangered species. These include cheetahs, wolves, American bison, black rhinoceroses, giraffes, zebras and waterbucks just to name a few. You can even feed some of the animals from your car!
