Corpus Christi, TX ~ One of my favorite beaches in the Corpus Christi area. It is a little off the beaten path, but there are showers, pavilions, and other amenities once you arrive. Well worth the drive!
San Antonio, TX ~ Brackenridge park is located in downtown San Antonio, and is surrounded by numerous attractions like the San Antonio Zoo, Japanese Tea Garden, and multiple museums. The final picture in this set is of the beautiful Hotel Emma (a converted 19th century brewery), also located near by.
Waxahachie, TX ~ The historic MKT Depot is located at 501 S. Rogers St. Waxahachie, TX 75165. Restoration was completed in 2010. Prior to that the depot was a stop on the Missouri-Kansas-Texas (MKT) rail line until 1964, primarily hauling cotton to local markets. Boyce Feed Store is located across the street from the depot. The feed store sells what you would expect (animal feed), but also has very cute shabby chic home decor and country ready clothing.
Waxahachie, TX ~ The Ellis County Courthouse is located at 109 S. Jackson St, Waxahachie, TX 75165. This historic structure has been fully restored and is operational. You’ll need to visit in person to see the amazing architectural details, such as the gargoyles, carved faces on the columns, and granite stone at the base. If you stop by during the day you can even take a free tour. * These photos were taken in the winter of 2017.
