The Jungle-Like Area Of Texas That You Have To Experience For Yourself
Considering our state is nearly 900 miles across, an incredible amount of ecological diversity is to be expected. That being said, most people don’t know we have a park that resembles a lush, tropical jungle. Palmetto State Park in Gonzales lets you escape into paradise without leaving Texas.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
