Encompassed within the Texas Hill Country on 725 acres, guests have lots of options from which to choose, including horse- back riding, swimming, catch-and- release fishing, hiking, hayrides, campfire sing-alongs, dancing and more Western adventures. Have a meal from an authentic chuck wagon and ride the range with trails leading you to amazing views. Scenic Seashore Padre Island National Seashore, along the Southern coast of Texas, features the longest stretch of undevel- oped barrier Island in the world. Run by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the seashore shelters rare Kemp's Ridley sea turtles and encompasses Grasslands Nature Trail where you'll get a chance to see an array of wild- life, including 380 bird species that call it home. Many activities abound, so get ready to kayak the Laguna Madre, attend a ranger program or – if the timing's right – watch a sea turtle hatchling release. Serious About Steaks At the Taste of Texas in Houston, restaurant owners Nina and Edd Hendee serve only the most delectable, perfectly aged Certified Angus Beef. For the serious steak lover, try the 38-ounce tomahawk rib eye or the tender center-cut filet. In addition to excellent steaks and award-winning wine choices, the restaurant also features a muse- um housing rare Texana historical documents and artifacts. History tours and cooking classes can also be a part of the adventure you can have at this famed Houston steak- house. n 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Abilene.....................................E4 ............................. 100 Arlington .................................
