Things to Do

Texas Travel Experiences Having Nothing But Water in Common (It’s Not What You Think)

By  | 

With a continually evolving mixture of people and places, Texas has become a traveler’s paradise. It provides almost every type of geographic locale you may want to peruse, with the luxury of never having to leave your own state! Yes, with changing times come changing trends in day trips and vacations, but the state of Texas has consistently provided some cornerstones of the makings of a great trip. That being said, water, in particular, is the focus of this article – and not so much being in it, as seeing and learning from things that are (ok well, in one instance you can be “in” it. We’ll give you that.) So if you’re looking forward to new and interesting Texas travel experiences, here is a small mix of places and things to do with nothing but water in common.

Mineral Wells, Texas was at one time a premier spa resort city. It was touted as the place “Where America Drinks its way to health,” and as such, welcomed thousands of tourists every year to drink and bathe in its therapeutic waters. Once again, in this day and age, you too can have the opportunity to live like stars such as Judy Garland and Clark Gable, as you experience the mineral baths of a bygone era. The Crazy Bath House in Mineral Wells (owned and operated by Crazy Water) offers mineral baths and treatments inspired by these waters. Resembling the bath houses of the early 1900s, this opportunity will send you back in time and soak your cares, and toxins, away!

The Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi opens a new Caribbean Journey showcase in the summer of 2017, making it bigger, better, and a whole lot of water-related learning fun on the Texas coast. The new display wing doubles the size of the aquarium, has a glass roof, and takes visitors through the exploration of the Western Caribbean Sea and Yucatan Peninsula. Learn about varying habitats, types of sharks, tropical fish, and coral reefs among other great displays and exhibits. They will also have a 4-D theater where you can take a virtual swim with the sea creatures!
