Things you absolutely have to do in Texas in January

By Michelle Ames

Happy New Year. Living in Texas may be hard in August, but our reward is our usually mild winters. Take advantage of these cool days, many of which still require shorts, and pack your calendar full of places to visit and explore around the Lone Star State.

Texas State Parks First Day Hikes and Bikes

Ring in the New Year with midnight hikes or one of the many First Day Hikes organized at Texas State Parks. Imagine reaching the summit of Devil’s Backbone at Inks Lake State Park right at midnight, or hiking on New Year’s Day to Fehr’s Overlook at Bastrop State Park. What’s more, almost all the hikes are free with park admission. The parks also offers races, bike rides and much, much more.
