Adventures you can drive to within a few hours from Dallas
Travel out Highway 35 toward Austin, and you are 220 miles from the beautiful Hamilton Pool. Hamilton Pool is a 45-foot natural waterfall that flows into a beautiful swimming area. There is only room for about 75 cars to park there, so you are not elbow to elbow with others. In the winter months, reservations are required. You will feel like you have entered another world. But, that is how Texas is. It is a state of many different landscapes.
Are you looking for a laid back, and relaxed place to go that has all the charms of a great mysterious city? Jump in your car and head to Enchanted Rock. It is a 4 hour drive from Dallas, and when you get there, you find a blended city that is rare in any part of the country.
