Taming The Wild West
Texas has always been a state of beauty. From pink sunrises to awe-inspiring landscapes edged by a bright and starry sky, the scenery alone provides a reason in itself to visit. You might first associate Texas with the legends of the Wild West. Cowboys and ruffians worked their hands to the bone to provide for themselves and their family. It has since nurtured a firm belief that if you work hard, you can be successful. Some of that success has been in the building of unique and gorgeous resorts that span the large state. From romantic getaways to avenues for family adventures, each resort has something to offer. For those who are interested in visiting the Lone Star state, you should consider staying in one–or many–of the best resorts in Texas as listed below.

23 miles outside of Austin, Texas rests the Hyatt Regency: Lost Pines Resort and Spa. This resort spans over a whopping 400 acres and just kisses the Colorado River. Perfect for a romantic getaway, the resort offers fun activities to share with your loved one like horseback riding, kayaking, and even an opportunity to hike in the nearby McKinney Roughs Nature Park. Besides having a pool and golf course, the resort also hosts a fitness center, a few kids programs for those who brought their children with them, and a spa where you can indulge and be pampered. Although it’s easy to spend your time at the resort, there are adventures to be had outside of it as well.
Besides just hiking through McKinney Roughs Nature Park, you can even go on a zip line trail and experience nature in a way you never have before. For those who desire a trip into the exciting nightlife that a downtown has to offer, Austin is just a few miles away.
2. Lajitas Golf Resort
For those who really want to disappear from the city life for a while, then Lajitas Golf Resort is an excellent opportunity to do just that. With a massive resort that spans over 27,000 acres, they make sure that each of your days is filled with a new activity. Although the primary gem of this resort is its beautiful golf course, there’s plenty to do here even if you’re not a golfer. Horseback riding is always available for the family, but they also offer activities like zip lining, stand-up paddle boarding, shooting activities, mountain biking, and a beautiful spa. For those who love a bit of history that they can sink their teeth into, you may also be interested in exploring their local Longhorn Museum to uncover the rich connection the resort has with the Old West.
3. Horseshoe Bay Resort
With new events always popping up, Horseshoe Bay Resort is an excellent choice for those who want to have a great time with the family. Resting beside Lake LBJ, the resort’s best activities all have to do with the water. You can grab a canoe, kayak, or just go swimming in the beautiful lake LBJ. They also have jet skis available for rent. Fishing is also allowed for those who are eager to break out their fishing poles and hit the lake. Children and adults can uncover the wonders of exotic birds at an event devoted to introducing these birds to interested guests. If a pool is more your speed, then they have that covered as well. At the end of the night, everyone can gather for the nightly helping of S’mores. It’s an excellent time to gather around the fire and connect as a family.
For those who want to spend time at the resort as a couple, they have a few activities geared towards loving couples, too. A sunset cruise is regularly scheduled where couples can snuggle up together with a bottle of wine and enjoy all of the views the Lake has to offer under the Texas sunset. The resort also offers a wine tour of local wineries and vineyards. Finally, why not fully indulge and receives a couple’s massage after a long day of exploring the delights of the resort and nearby area? Horseshoe Bay Resort has plenty to offer everyone.
