Best Deep Water Start Without a Boat

Texas Ski Ranch

This 70-acre lake-sports megaplex is one of a kind in Texas, with the muscle to pull wakeboarders, knee boarders, and water-skiers on the only man-made cable-way lake around. This affordable wet getaway is stocked to keep you stoked with a restaurant, bar, its own skateboard park, climbing wall, motocross course, lessons, competitions, and oh so much more. You can even kick back and simply soak up the sun on the beach for a mere $5 a day.
