We spend a week in the spring and the fall at Lady Bird Johnson City Park in Fredericksburg. It has quite a few winter Texans. I wouldn't call it a resort but we really enjoy staying there. There is a nice municipal golf course at the park and it's great for walking / jogging. Some folks think it is a drawback but it is next to the Fredericksburg airport so there is some airplane traffic. However we enjoy watching the planes. We'll be down there from October 12 to 20.

We have spent several years in Weslaco, Texas at Snow-to-Sun RV Resort, It's 8 miles north of Progresso Mexico. It has all the amenities for about $375.00 a month. Check out their website. Eddie Elk.

We haven't fully wintered here rv wise, I'm still working, but we're working our way around the state 1 state park at a time. And they're great parks.

We took a drive over to Buckhorn Lake and it was very nice! We spent some time trying to find a site for the time that we would be in the area and due to the high demand we were unable to find a site without moving several times during our stay. We will start the reservation process earlier if we try to stay at Buckhorn next winter.

another vote for Fredricksburgh. If I had to stay in Texas that area is where I would be. Watch for the deer if you're driving

We, too, will follow this thread closely. We chose FL this year because it was convenient for where we were. But next year, it is TX or AZ. Most likely TX. Closer to home and grandkids, as well as where we will travel for the next two years.

We just spent $1100 on $3000+ US prices... 1-956-246-4100
OR after getting back to the small RV park we were told about a new area for dentists with much better prices (and work). It's just across the International Bridge at Los Indios, TX. - this one you can drive to. On the right after crossing the bridge - Giodent - the dentist is Mayra Pena Cardenas - 1-956-742-6900... Los Indios is 10-12 miles SE of Progresso towards Brownsville on Military Hwy.

Good luck. You can't go wrong with the Texas Hill Country. Beautiful winters, horrific summers. I came here from west Texas and never left, 34 years ago. The heat and property taxes will force me to leave eventually.

Thanks in advance for your time!
Austin is great this time of year, as things cool down head over to Rockport Corpus Christi area and work your way south. Jan Feb I think you will want to be in Rio Grande Valley. Mission to South Padre area has hundreds of parks, first year we tried 10 of them now when going to that area we stay at
Home - Victoria Palms
It is fun to go over to Progesso. Will be back this year after 2 years in AZ and last year in FL. Hope I can talk the dw into going to AZ in March and April before heading home.
I think the best bbq I ever had was at Cooper's BBQ: Llano, Texas | (325) 247-5713 | over in Llano

There's a Coopers in New Braunfels now. Both are outstanding. Best, thickest pork chop I've ever had.
Going to Austin in a couple of weeks for a dog show. Staying here for the first time;
