Hidden Gems in Texas

July 09, 2021

Where can I find amazing hidden flower fields in Texas?  

One of the most iconic images of the Lone Star State is any of our scenic, seemingly endless fields of bluebonnets, or any other type of flower we’re lucky enough to have here. There are some amazing places you can go to that feature these flower fields. For example, the town of Marble Falls has a special place that only locals seem to know about: it’s called the Bluebonnet House, and for good reason. It’s a beautiful house, perfect for photographers, surrounded by a photogenic field of perfect bluebonnet flowers. The town of Burnet, which, coincidentally, is nearby Marble Falls, is also known by Texans for its breathtaking bluebonnet and flower displays. In Ennis, Texas, you’ll find the Ennis Bluebonnet Trails, which is a must-see for wildflower enthusiasts in the spring.  

Where can I find a hidden oasis in Texas?  

Texas is a GIGANTIC state with so many hidden gems and beautiful places that it’s hard to narrow it down to just a few, but we can try! There’s a spectacular array of hidden Texas splendor in this article, and some of our personal favorites include the incredible Devil’s River, which is a perfectly hidden oasis tucked inside Del Rio. Son’s Island, on Lake Placid, is also an incredible, underappreciated oasis gem right here in the Lone Star State. Nearby Round Mountain, you’ll find the incredible Westcave Preserve, which often goes sadly overlooked in favor of the nearby Hamilton Pool. It’s like the perfect secret right under the noses of nearby tourists!  

Are there any hidden waterfalls in Texas I can hike to?  

There are certainly plenty of well-known waterfalls scattered about the Lone Star State, but what about ones that are less appreciated? Well, perhaps they aren’t secret, per se, but some waterfalls in this gorgeous state are lesser known than their famous counterparts. Inside Colorado Bend State Park is a stunningly gorgeous 70-foot-tall spring-fed waterfall. There’s a bit of a hike to get there but trust us when we say it’s worth every moment. In Spicewood, Texas, you’ll find a little fall at Krause Springs, which trickles down into a delightful swimming hole. Need more? Check out this article for more of our favorite “secret” waterfalls in Texas!
