History is Better Outside!

History and cultural treasures come alive in Texas State Parks this October! From playing land/sea/air games aboard the historic Battleship Texas, to getting a taste of the outdoors at a living history farm, or hiking to view 10,000 year old rock art— bring your family closer to the rich cultural history of Texas!

But that’s only the beginning. Many state parks offer guided tours of 19th century missions, military frontier forts, and Civilian Conservation Corps structures or special history events and presentations— like The First Regular Army or “Buffalo Soldiers”. Plus, October is Texas Archeology Month, and Texas State Parks feature some of the best Native American pictographs in the nation.
