The Little-Known Natural Wonder In Texas That Becomes Even More Enchanting In The Wintertime

Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and began writing for OnlyInYourState in 2015.
Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
The best winter destinations in Texas aren’t always freezing cold or covered in snow. Personally, I seek out secluded, quiet places during winter in the Lone Star State to really embrace the contemplative nature of the season. One such place is Cedar Hill State Park, located near the DFW Metroplex. This lesser-known state park is worth visiting any time of year, but especially during the winter because of its peaceful nature and lack of large crowds.
Visit Texas Parks & Wildlife for more information about the park, including entrance fees and campsite availability.
