Texas is an expansive state. It has deserts, mountains, and beaches within its borders. There are also many RV destinations that couples can enjoy in Texas. Camping is a wonderful way to relax and bond with a partner.
The privacy and low cost of using an RV are endless. It will allow you and your spouse to spend quality time together without worrying about disturbing other guests or spending excessive amounts on food or drinks.
Here are some of the top spots for doing so:
1. Fort Davis
Fort Davis is a historic town in the Davis Mountains of West Texas. Its population is around 100 people, but most visitors are likely to be heading out into the surrounding woods or up to 7,800-foot Guadalupe Peak for hiking and camping.
If you plan on horseback riding, Fort Davis will be one of your favorite spots in all of Texas. You can also go birding or simply enjoy wandering around the quiet streets lined by century-old buildings.
