A Different Direction For Vacation-Go North Of The Texas Border!
Everyone in Texas, when thinking about vacation spots and what to try next, seems to always want to go east or west. And granted, there are a TON of great places within our own State borders to visit. No matter what you are looking for-you'll find it here. Lakes, fishing, beaches, swimming, nightlife, museums and art, live music, sports, and concerts-Texas has EVERYTHING. But when you're ready to try something different, and it's warm out, here's an idea: HEAD NORTH OF THE BORDER TO OKLAHOMA!
Just over the border, there's a great place that has campgrounds. It also offers swimming and boating and fishing and hiking... There's even a Volleyball court and basketball court. I'm talking about Lake Frederick in Tillman County Oklahoma. The best part is--everyone here always talks about everything being a 5 hour or more drive from here in West Texas... But this is actually UNDER that margin! Clocking in on the road at exactly 4 hours and 43 minutes (without potty or gas stops of course), this could be a fun trip to do this weekend with the entire family and just unplug for a few days.
When you pack-bring the swim trunks and pool toys, fishing gear, sports equipment, and a cooler with plenty of stuff to grill... And when you've swam and fished a grilled and hung out by the campfire and you're ready to see something different for a bit-head into town in Frederick and check out all there is to see and do-like the Hackberry Flat Center for some bird watching, or Pioneer Heritage Townsite Museum, or maybe even the World War 2 Airborne Demonstration Team Hangar. Whatever you do-enjoy your holiday weekend!
