At Riverside Homebuilders, we knew that building new construction homes throughout the Greater Dallas-Fort Worth area would ensure that our homeowners had everything they were looking for when it came to finding the perfect location to set down their roots. When the summer months hit, it’s almost inevitable that our minds begin to wander to new destinations to explore—but when you live in the DFW area, you’ll never need to look far to find your next great adventure. Read on to see some of the best day trips you can take this summer around your own home.
If finding adventure is what you’re setting your sights on, you won’t have to look far—and making the drive south to Enchanted Rock State Natural Area will be well worth the time. The pink granite dome is a sight to behold, and with a number of hiking trails, rock climbing excursions and camping areas to explore, you’ll easily be able to find something that everyone will enjoy.
For the thrill seekers in the family, taking a drive to the city of Longview is definitely something to add to your summer calendar. With both the Air U Trampoline Park and the G-Force amusement center located within city limits, your day is sure to be anything but boring. The city also boasts an incredible laser tag course at Lazer X in Longview that you can frequent, or take a quick drive south of the city for an incredible ziplining excursion at the Thomas Falls Outdoor Adventures and Event Center.
At first glance, the quaint city of Athens seems to be just like any other in the area, but what you might not know is that the city is also the ideal place for lessons on scuba diving and snorkeling. Athens Scuba Park boasts 10 diving docks around the lake, so sign up for a class and have the time of your life exploring over 20 sunken wrecks the water holds.
Across the state of Texas, you’ll see your fair share of towns and cities with well-preserved historical architecture all around you—and sometimes, taking a weekend trip to one of these charming locations offers the ultimate summer getaway while still staying close to home.
When you visit the city of Terrell, you might want to add the Terrell Historical Museum to the top of your list for a walk through time. Stroll through the streets and marvel at the picturesque Victorian and Revival era homes that lie throughout the city. For the best bed and breakfast getaway, set your sights on the city of Jefferson, and don’t forget to make some time to tour the quaint antique shops and boutiques scattered around town. Up next on your city tour, Greenville offers incredible dining options for residents and visitors alike to enjoy. With an award winning winery also located within the area—you might want to make it a long weekend.
