Celebrate New Year’s Eve the Way You Want

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Not everyone likes to celebrate New Year’s Eve the same way. Some people want a big party, with lots of new faces. Some want to step out in style with a group of friends, for dinner and dancing. Still others want nothing more than a quiet evening with one special person.

Fireworks will light the sky in San Antonio on New Year's Eve.

Texas is a large, diverse state. It has big, cosmopolitan cities and small, historic towns. It has vast stretches of open land, and miles of coastline on the Gulf of Mexico. Texas Bed and Breakfasts are located all over the state, in the big cities, the small towns, and the countryside.

Make New Year’s Eve special this year, no mater where or how you like to celebrate it, by spending it in a Texas Bed and Breakfast.

Stay close to home or go away for a night or two. If you enjoy all big cities have to offer, spend New Year’s Eve in Fort Worth,¬†San Antonio, or Dallas. If you’d like to wake up on January 1, 2012 and go for a walk on the beach, head to a Texas Bed and Breakfast on the Gulf Coast. If you’d like to spend a romantic evening sipping wine in a quaint, historic town, head to one of our member Bed and Breakfasts in the Texas Hill Country.

Special events are happening all over the state. There is a Midnight Volksport Walk in Fredericksburg, for anyone interested in walking in the new year. There are numerous concerts and galas all over Dallas and Houston. San Antonio hosts a huge, free celebration with live music on six stages, food, and fireworks.

New Year’s Eve should be spent however you feel comfortable spending it. We’re certain you’ll be comfortable in a Texas Bed and Breakfast.


Great Texas Birding Classic

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Look for graceful egrets during the 2011 Great Texas Birding Classic.

The 15th Annual Great Texas Birding Classic takes place April 9 – 15, 2011. Birders will be flocking to the Gulf Coast of Texas with binoculars in hand to view the spring bird migration. Many of them will be staying in Gulf Coast Texas Bed and Breakfasts.

The Great Texas Birding Classic is intended to be both a fun event and a serious “birding for conservation tournament”. Each year, teams compete to see who can spot and record the most bird species in a given period of time. The winning teams will choose the conservation projects to be awarded Conservation Grant Grand Prizes.

More than 400 bird species have been spotted along the Texas Gulf Coast during the spring migration. Many bird species are strongly impacted by the loss or alteration of their temporary habitat. The Great Texas Birding Classic helps raise awareness about the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail, and contributes funds towards conservation.

Enjoy a good night’s sleep and a breakfast that will fuel you through hours of scanning the skies at Texas Gulf Coast Bed and Breakfasts.

Kemah Boardwalk

Kemah Texas Boardwalk originally uploaded by mrchriscornwell.

October is a good time to bring out your inner child – not with tantrums, but with enthusiasm and a deep sense of wonder. Few places embrace the inner child like Kemah Texas. This Texas Gulf Coast town features a lively boardwalk, complete with ferris wheel (pictured above), roller coaster, and cotton candy.

While Kemah is a great destination for families looking for diversion, it is also a fine place for romantic getaways. Kemah Texas is nestled between the Gulf Coast and Clear Lake. There are miles of waterfront where couples may stroll hand and hand, numerous eateries, and nightly entertainment. Enjoy big views and a cuddle at the top of the ferris wheel, and clutch one another while rushing along in the roller coaster.

The boardwalk area of Kemah is lively, but steps away from it is a quiet, coastal town. Less than an hour from Houston (even in traffic) Kemah Texas bed and breakfasts are the perfect place for city dwellers to find rest and relaxation.
