To launch Texas on Hipcamp, we jumped at the chance to feature Brooke and Taylor from Texas Vibes as we had been following their river adventures on social for a while. In fact, they inspired our photo and reviews contest, so we asked that they write an ode to what makes The Lone Star State so awesome:
Texas Vibes started as a social media space for us to share our photos and adventures with close friends and family. After a couple of weekend trips to different State Parks we noticed our followers soon began to grow. We realized that many native Texans who have lived their entire lives in the state had never ventured very far and explored their own backyard.
This inspired us to travel to new places and show our friends, new and old, just how diverse and beautiful this state truly is. Texas Vibes has become somewhat of an identity for us. We want to promote Texas’ state parks, national parks and natural areas. We want to share our stories and inspire others to get out and explore. We want to love big and always travel with a smile. If we can share tips and tricks and secrets along the way, even better! We’re just two old souls rambling around the state and falling even more in love with each mile added to the odometer ☺
Texas is pretty damn rad, everything from the diverse landscape down to the brew and bbq. Texas truly does have so much to offer. Here are a couple of ‘Must See’ places if you ever happen to find yourself in the state:
Big Bend National Park: one of the most diverse parks in the state. It ranges with everything from the highest peaks in Texas, miles of desert riddled with cacti, hot springs along the Texas/ Mexico border, juniper forests, and some of the darkest skies in the world. Big Bend is a magical place well worth the drive.
Caddo Lake State Park: the only natural lake in all of Texas. The park is a tangle of lush vegetation and a maze of bald cypresses. Being in the park is a different experience than most would expect when exploring Texas. It’s definitely one of the best places to canoe and gator watch.
Guadalupe River: Camping along the river in the middle of summer is any Texan’s favorite past time. Tube the falls with a group of friends, enjoy some locally brewed beer, dance to good ol’ Texas country and nap along the banks of the river in the sun. Doesn’t get much more Texan than that!
No matter what you prefer — be it the beach, the mountains, desert, forests, canyons — Texas has it all! There are many places waiting to be explored and Hipcamp is bringing the Texas experience to your fingertips!
