Best Day Trip

Enchanted Rock State Natural Area

The results in this category may be not be new, but the experience is always fresh no matter how many times the trip is made. The drive out to the mammoth rock gets you completely out of the rat race. And although the climb looks daunting, even three-year olds and sexagenarians can tackle it. A must-see for out-of-towners, and better yet: out-of-country visitors. The vastness of the view drops jaws every time and inspires loyalty from readers again and again.
