History and nature combine at Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site, a little-known park nestled in a rural area between Houston and Austin. With a museum, living history farm, and peaceful trails ideal for picnicking, sightseeing, and birdwatching, this underrated Texas destination is equal parts relaxing and educational.
Visitor Center hours are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily. Head to the park’s website or Facebook page to learn more.
