City Editor London here. I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed my journey exploring eight local state parks to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Texas State Parks.

We kicked off this series in February and since then I’ve been able to see firsthand just how there is to explore in Central Texas.

Here’s what I’ve learned:

  • Best for: Seeing Texas history
    • Longhorn Cavern State Park
    • McKinney Falls State Park
  • Best for: Hiking
    • Bastrop State Park
    • Buescher State Park
    • Pedernales Falls State Park
  • Best for: Activities
    • Blanco State Park
    • Lockhart State Park
    • Inks Lake State Park

Now, I’d love to hear from you. Did you like our state parks series? Would you be interested in another series like this?
