The nights are getting lighter and the days are getting longer. We all know what that means. So have you caught it yet? That seasonal sickness we all seem to get this time of year? No, not the flu – Spring Fever! With the beautiful spring-like weather we’ve been having, and talk of Spring Break just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about where to go on your early 2018 retreat.

First and foremost, make sure your RV is properly de-winterized and ready before heading out. The last thing you want is to break down while on vacation! It’s worth a visit to Quality RV Solutions to have Laszlo and his team give your vehicle a check up and take care of any maintenance issues before you make your escape from the big city. Call him at 817-764-1363 to schedule your appointment.

Secondly, get your annual Texas State Parks Pass for unlimited entry to more than 90 state parks, as well as discounts on camping, park store purchases and equipment rentals. Take advantage of the plethora of information on the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department website to plan your perfect getaway.

Fortunately, you don’t have to go far to enjoy the diverse beauty of our great state of Texas!  Whether you fancy the water or the hills, whether you choose to stay close by or take a few hour drive, Texas has it all. A few places you might want to visit:
