If you want to plan a safe family trip to Texas, but you don’t know what places are safe to visit, we are here to help. Because we understand just how important safety is while on vacation, we have put together a short list of five locations that you can include in your track. So, read ahead and pick your next destination!
If you want to visit Dallas or the Fort Worth area but you need accommodation in a nearby city that is known for its safety, we suggest that you check out Colleyville. This town is situated at 3.5 miles from the Dallas airport, and it is currently in the top five low-crime rate cities in Texas.
While here, we recommend that you spend your spare time by taking your small ones to the Parr Park Sprayground, a 31-acre playground, and picnic area, or to the Colleyville Nature Center, a location that is known for its beautiful trails that go through wooded areas and near beautiful ponds.
If you are a sports aficionado, you can also go to Chisholm Park, as here you can find baseball and basketball fields where you can practice. Also, here you can find a fishing pond and an aquatic center that you might enjoy.
Another city that is located near Dallas is Keller. This city is worth your while because here you can find safe and budget friendly accommodation if you intend to visit Dallas. However, it is worth saying that, while in this town, you can also explore its top sights.
For instance, you can go to Altitude Trampoline Park where you can let your kids play, jump and have fun on the over 200 interconnected trampolines. Additionally, if you love a day off playing golf, you should not miss the Sky Creek Ranch Golf Club. The course here is kept in good condition, and the views are very appealing.
What is more, if you happen to visit the city during the hot Texas summers, we suggest that you go to the Keller Pointe. Here, you can enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools as well as the water slides.
Located in the same area, Fairview is also a place worth your consideration. This city is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and it goes by the motto “Keeping It Country”. Because of this, you can be sure that, by visiting this place, you will get a first-hand glimpse at what country life is all about.
If you happen to come here, you should take the time to explore the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary as you won’t regret your decision. Moreover, once here, you can catch a movie at the iPic. If you don’t mind the drive, it might be a good idea to visit the nearby Allen Old Stone Dam, a water station that dates back to 1874.
If you want to visit Austin during the day, but you want to spend the night in an adjacent, safer city, you should consider Hutto. This city is a suburb of Austin that is currently the seventh safest place in Texas.
If you have some time on your hands while here, you should visit the beautiful Hutto lake park or you try fishing on the Paloma Lake.
If you are looking for accommodation in a safe city in the El Paso County, Horizon City should be one of your top choices. The town is located near El Paso, and, thus, you can easily enjoy the beauties of the location.
For example, if you like climbing and hiking, you can visit the nearby Franklin Mountains State Park, or you can take a short trip to the Hueco Tanks State Historic Site for a day out camping. For more outside fun, you can always take your kids to visit the El Paso zoo or the Wyler Aerial Tramway.
If you are into art, the El Paso Museum of Art, the Museum of Archaeology, and the El Paso Museum of History are also places that should make it to your list. So, don’t waste time and start planning your trip!
