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.

Texas won more games than Oklahoma this season, has won more games the past two seasons, and ended the season 7-1 while Oklahoma ended the season 4-3. Yet, tell that to an Oklahoma fan and they'll tell you that you don't know football and Oklahoma was more successful than Texas from 2000-2021. Ask them what that means in 2024 and enjoy the awkward silence #HookEm

The Kansas City Chiefs traded up with the Buffalo Bills to pick #28 to select forever Longhorn Xavier Worthy. After running a 4.21 at the NFL Draft Combine, Worthy paired with Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid in Kansas City seem like a match made in heaven. I join @LockedOnChiefs to let Chiefs Kingdom know what to expect from their first round receiver.
