sunflower field in Texas

Are there any other flowering fields in Texas?

The Lone Star State is home to several flowering fields if you know where to look. The Texas bluebonnet is perhaps one of the most abundant and popular wildflowers, and they typically peak in March and April. Marble Falls in central Texas is a great place to spot wildflowers, and while you’re in the area you can pop on over to Burnet which is affectionately known as the “Bluebonnet Capital of Texas”, and a drive down Highway 29 towards Mason this time of year will yield beautiful pops of color.

What are the most beautiful places in Texas?

From limestone caverns to cypress swamps, Texas has some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the country. For a swampy scene, head over to Caddo Lake in East Texas, a great spot for kayaking through the cypress trees and wetlands. Willow City Loop outside of Fredericksburg is great for checking out the bluebonnets, and perhaps the most hidden gem in Texas is the Palo Duro Canyon, nicknamed the “Grand Canyon of Texas.”

Where should I go to see things in nature in Texas?

For kayakers, you can’t go wrong with a trip down the Medina River. Lined with cedar and oak trees and beautiful limestone bluffs, this spring-fed lake is ideal for those looking to see nature from a different perspective. Krause Springs is a beautiful 115-acre site with 32 springs plus a waterfall and several rocks to perch on and soak up some sun. If you’re seeking nature beneath the surface, head over to the Cave Without A Name in Boerne where you can explore a quarter-mile of caverns filled with stalactites, stalagmites, and helictites.
