Put on your swimsuit and jump into the crystal clear waters of your resort’s swimming pool. What a way to while away the heat of the day. No pool at your park? Hop in the car. Plenty of beaches close to Houston and Brazoria. Heck, you might want to go there anyway.
A favorite is Terramar Beach – White sand, quiet, calm, relaxing…and clean, not tourist-y at all. Bring your own lunch and umbrellas.
Hey, you know what else is cool? Air-conditioning! Thank goodness for Willis Carrier, who invented air-conditioning as we know it in 1902. Our homes, RVs, cars, and buildings are vastly more comfortable because of Willis and his machine.
So, let’s take a day-trip to someplace cool and chill out. Just about midway between San Antonio and the Houston-Brazoria area is Victoria, Texas (112 miles from San Antone and 122 miles from Houston)
Victoria is Chill
Victoria is the home of The Museum of the Coastal Bend. Yes, it’s air-conditioned! The Museum offers an overview of early Texas history, including French and Spanish settlers, as well as indigenous people going back 13000 years.
How about kayaking on the Victoria Paddling Trail at Riverside Park? Okay, it’s not air-conditioned. It’s outside. But it’s cool because it’s on the Guadalupe River.
Bring your own kayak or rent one from Gerry’s Kayaks – they offer kayak, tube and bike rentals right here in the park.
Take your camera – you’ll see bald eagles, osprey, egrets, herons, kingfishers, hawks, sandpipers, phoebes, and turkeys. Enjoy the shade of native cypress, oak, and pecan trees as you glide along.
Hungry yet? Take yourself out for a nice dinner before heading home. The Pump House Riverside Restaurant and Bar serves everything you like and it’s air-conditioned.
