Texas Summer Bucket List – Beat The Heat With Exploring Amanda


Those hot summer days have arrived and it’s time to start checking things off your Texas summer bucket list (if you haven’t already)!

We asked our pal Exploring Amanda to share some of her favorite spots in Texas to beat the heat.

Here are the five things to add to your Texas summer bucket list!

1 – Float the River

Head to New Braunfels or San Marcos and get your float on! While you’re down there, here are some other things to do in NB and SM.

2 – Jump In Jacob’s Well

Jump into Jacob’s Well to chill out – if you dare! Here’s everything you need to know before you head there.

3 – Cool Down at Natural Bridge Cavern

It’s always 70 degrees inside Natural Bridge Cavern! Longhorn Cavern is another cool spot.

4 – Visit The Texas Coast

Plan a beach day getaway at the Texas coast. Amanda’s fave is South Padre. Ours is Mustang Island. Here’s why!

5 – Grab Brisket and a Cold One

There’s no shortage of spots in Texas to grab some brisket and brew. In fact, we’ve got a whole post of our favorite local joints for BBQ. Check it out here!
