Day Trip to Rockwall 🪨 (FULL EPISODE) S10 E5

Published

on

SUMMARY: In Rockwall, Texas, visitors can discover a refreshing lack of stereotypical attractions. The city is home to the Rockwall Harbor, a waterfront area located on the banks of Lake Ray Hubbard. There are also several memorable dining options, such as Boots Burgers or BIN303, a restaurant offering creative takes on Texan cuisine. For those seeking adventure, the North Texas Sailing School provides lessons for beginner sailors. Additionally, the small yet historic Rockwall County Square is being revitalized, allowing visitors to explore the city’s past and see iconic locations such as the museum housing the mysterious prehistoric “rock wall” the town is named after.

You may think you know Rockwall, and that might just be as a fancy suburb of Dallas, but it’s more complex than that. This town on the banks of Lake Ray Hubbard has new surprises around every corner.

This museum is housed in the oldest residential home in town — and it’s more than just a treasure trove of local artifacts. It’s also the place where you can learn about the real and very mysterious rock wall, which has some controversy about how it got there or where it came from. See what’s left of this seemingly man-made historic wall that stretches down 80 feet into the ground outside the museum.

If the last destination was the most historic, than this just might be the most futuristic house in town… even if it was built in the 1960s. This space ship-looking circular house was one of the few popular “Futuro Houses” that actually made it to market during the 1960s, when this modern style was created. And though now it’s only a shell of a building, I bet your imagination will run wild with the sci-fi possibilities of this place.

You might be surprised to find that the local favorite burger joint is actually a converted garage! It’s got none of the those frilly things like fries, tables and waitstaff — but what it does have is some of the best flavorful and greasy burgers you’ll find. Order yours with the homemade jalapeno relish, grab a coke and some chips and enjoy your burger nearby at Harry Myers Park (because it’s actually illegal to eat on the property.)

Just off the square is an upscale restaurant serving more than just your average Texan eats. Chef Mat of the Culinary Institute of America cooks up delicious fresh plates with global influences to create something super special, like rolled pork tacos with ancho BBQ Sauce.

And just like nothing is quite what it seems in this town, the local gravel and turf company has built a golf course behind their lot in a corn field. True, it’s only 9-holes and par 3, but that doesn’t mean it’s not still hours of fun!

The Rockwall Harbor is a happening place! Whether you’re taking sailing lessons with the North Texas Sailing School, hopping on a yacht at the Rush Creek Yacht Club or catching a concert on a summer night, this spot has something for everyone, and an incredible view of Lake Ray Hubbard.

Talking Texas | Bluebonnet History, Killer Pets & Texas Dance Halls

Published

on

www.youtube.com – The Daytripper – 2024-03-01 12:29:20

SUMMARY: The Bluebonnet became the state flower of Texas in 1901. There were three main contenders for the state flower, including the Cotton Bowl, Indian paintbrush, and the bluebonnet. Eventually, the bluebonnet won and became the state flower. It is currently not illegal to pick bluebonnets in Texas, but it is advised to respect the flowers and private property. The gold poppies that grow in El Paso’s Franklin Mountains are a result of people planting poppy seeds in the 1930s. It is debated how the poppies originally came to the area, but they continue to cover the mountains in a beautiful display each spring.

We’re back again talking about all things Texas. With spring here, we’re discussing bluebonnet history and how it became the state flower of Texas.
