This week over at Kelly’s Korner she has ask where your favorite place to vacation is. . . . . .well, if you have been one of the two people who follow my blog you know that we love spending time in Colorado!!! We try to go some place new each time but we always end up at the same place for a few days. This past year we just stayed in one place. . . .our favorite place. A little place called Fun Valley Resort in the south central part of the state. While there we always go to Creede, Lake City, Pagosa Springs, and Alamosa. In the past we have gone to Pike’s Peak, Aspen, Vail, Pueblo, Canon City, Gunnison and Leadville and I am sure there are others but I can’t remember. We love the cooler weather, the mountains, the smells, just about everything about it except for the drive!!
Another state we enjoy because it is home is Texas. There are so many things to see and do and enjoy. There are the stockyards in Fort Worth, Johnson Space Center in Houston, the Alamo in San Antonio, a huge stretch of beach, mountains to the west, and the list could go on. There are some beautiful state parks such as Inks Lake and Tyler State Park which are two of our favorites. We have big rodeos and livestock shows in Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. We have some huge universities with beautiful campuses. The state capital is in Austin and there are tons of things to do in Austin. And best of all. . . .you haven’t had TEX MEX until you have eaten TEX MEX in Texas!! If you are planning a trip to Texas and need some ideas on what to do, let me know and I will help you!!
We have also vacationed in Oklahoma (sorry but it was not our favorite place. . . .I think it had to do with where we were) and in Alabama near Birmingham which was nice also but both Oklahoma and Alabama were as hot as Texas!!!!
