Life’s Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, ‘Holy cow… What a Ride!’ So Live.Play.Enjoy… Get Outside!

One of the great things about Texas is that it offers a wide variety of outdoor activities and fun things to do that you can enjoy year round (although I can’t recommend tubing the Guadalupe in January). This section of Texas Outside is for all of you who love outdoor activities and sports including: hiking, biking, kayaking, climbing, disc golfing, horse back riding, surfing, scuba and snorkeling, windsurfing, tubing (can we call that a sport?), and more.
