Welcome to the Lone Star State, where everything is bigger, brighter, and bolder! Texas is a land of vast landscapes, rich history, and endless opportunities for adventure. Whether you're seeking the tranquility of nature, the thrill of outdoor sports, or the excitement of exploring vibrant cities, Texas has it all. And with Recreogo, your ultimate adventure companion, your Texan adventure is bound to be unforgettable.

Looking to relax in nature?

Start your Texas escape by immersing yourself in the beauty of Gray Ranch in Sweeny, Texas. Nestled amidst the rolling hills, and only about 30 minutes from the Gulf, Gray Ranch offers an idyllic camping experience with modern amenities, making it the perfect base for your Texas adventure. Recreogo makes booking campsites a breeze - relax under the stars in one of their primitive tent campsites, or, take it up a notch and rent the elevated tent site which has a queen bed suitable for two, compostable toilet, sun-shower, picnic table, and fire pit! Tent camping not your thing? Gray Ranch also has campers available to rent.

After a good night’s sleep, head about 30 minutes south to San Bernard Wildlife Refuge where you’ll have exceptional wildlife viewing, plenty of hiking and biking trails, and four miles of beach!

Craving more beach time?

Corpus Christi has 9 beaches on the Gulf Coast and is the perfect place for adventure. From windsurfing to fishing, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. For those who crave the thrill of reeling in the big catch, a fishing tour with Baywatch Tours in Corpus Christi is a must-do experience. Situated along the picturesque Gulf Coast, Corpus Christi boasts some of the best fishing grounds in the state, teeming with a variety of prized game fish. With 4 family friendly captained tours you’ll be able to fish, see birds and wildlife, cruise through Millionaire Row and the canals, and witness stunning sunsets.

Looking for more relaxation? Padre Island, a beach-lovers paradise just minutes from downtown Corpus Christi, is the place to be. As the world's largest remaining natural barrier island, this breathtaking expanse boasts 70 miles of unspoiled national seashore. Explore sandy beaches caressed by Gulf breezes, observe a rich variety of birds and wildlife, and bask in the sunshine at this South Texas gem.

Want to stay more urban?

Head over to Lone Star Yamaha in Irving, TX, just 20 minutes from Dallas, where a diverse range of motorcycles awaits. Whether you prefer cruising along open roads or navigating winding trails, there's nothing quite like the freedom of a motorcycle ride in Texas.

For those looking to take their adventure off the beaten path and inject a dose of adrenaline, Adventure Off-Road Rentals, located just outside the bustling cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, offers the perfect solution. With a fleet of top-of-the-line ATVs and UTVs, they provide the ideal vehicles for tackling rugged trails and conquering challenging terrain.

After a long day of riding (either on two wheels or four) you’re sure to be hungry… so stop by one of the amazing and authentic Tex-Mex restaurants in downtown Dallas.  

It wouldn’t be a true Texas adventure without a rodeo, so after you’ve had a chance to try the local cuisine, change into your cowboy hat and boots and giddy-up on over to the Mesquite Championship Rodeo. Just 15 minutes from downtown Dallas and held on Saturday nights in June, July, and August, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to see the world famous event.
