Six Flags Fiesta Texas, located in San Antonio, is the second of two theme parks in Texas. Like its counterpart in the Metroplex, Fiesta Texas offers a variety of rides, food, live shows, and other entertainment.
Unfortunately I've only had the opportunity to visit this park twice, but one of my daughters has been down several times over the last few years. She says, though it seems smaller than the one in Arlington, that it is just as much fun and has had a lot of growth over the last few years.
When we went several years ago, it was a lot more spread out than the Six Flags in Arlington. It reminded me in a lot of ways of Sea World and the long distances between each attraction. Also, the temperature was extremely hot, it seemed a lot more dry than it does here and there was a lot less entertainment under a roof to protect us from the sun.
But it was a great time, and my daughter that has been several times has had the opportunity to go to both Six Flags parks here in Texas multiple times, so if she says it would be worth a visit, I'd take her word for it!

If you are a musician, you know the importance of taking care of your equipment. You want something that is going to protect your equipment that you can trust, and is also financially practical. You also want something that looks good.
Looking at keyboard cases from musicians friend is a great way to get the quality you want at a price you can afford, and that you know will be something that will keep your instrument safe.

Most small, west Texas towns are considered "in the middle of nowhere", but this is far from the case when it comes to Marfa, Texas. While it's geographical location might be considered somewhere in nowhere, the abundance of things to do and see is a stark contrast to that label.
Marfa, a town consisting of a couple of thousand residents that is the county seat of Presidio County, offers art, history, and some of the most beautiful scenery of the Lone Star State.
Established in 1883, this tiny water stop on the railroad line on the high plateau of the Chihuahuan Desert has grown into a great place for artist and tourist alike. Located approximately 4800 feet above sea level, the climate is much more tolerable than most areas of west Texas. This makes it the hub of places to camp, hike, and sightsee when visiting the area.
Marfa is located between the Davis Mountains and Big Bend National Park, which makes it a great place to stop for a few days after visiting to the national park, or the McDonald Observatory near Fort Davis. While here visitors can swim, hike, camp, visit museums, or one of more than a dozen art galleries. You read that right- art galleries!
