Make a vacation rental in East Texas, USA your home away from home

East Texas is a region of the state that has a very different appearance to the classical image of the state. Instead of sweeping desert landscapes the scenery around East Texas vacation rentals is mostly hardwood forest, with a host of protected areas, comprising rivers and lakes.

Things to do in East Texas, USA

If you’re an outdoor enthusiast then East Texas vacation accommodation would certainly appeal to you. Much of this area is taken up by the region known as Piney Woods – it’s home to thousands of acres of hardwood and pine forest, and 17 state parks, ensuring a huge area to explore. A great place to start your discovery of this beautiful region would be Conroe, which sits on the shore of the lake of the same name. It’s a top destination for water sports, including kayaking, swimming and fishing. There’s also plenty to keep keen golfers entertained, with as many as 12 courses in the area, providing a mix between public and private clubs.

An interesting choice for self-catering vacation rentals would be Nacogdoches, which is the oldest town in the entire state. It was established in the early 18th Century and also features a number of sites relevant to Native American culture, with Caddo Indian Mounds. As with much of the region around, it’s also a great destination for outdoor activities, thanks to Lake Nacogdoches and Lake Sam Rayburn in the area.

Huntsville would also be a good destination for visitors to East Texas self-catering accommodation. Many of its attractions are devoted to Sam Houston, who was the first American president to come from Texas. The highlight is a statue of the man, 67 feet in height.

Places to visit on holiday in East Texas, USA

Towards the south of the region, East Texas vacation rentals would also be ideal for a holiday on the Gulf Coast, where there are hundreds of miles of sandy beaches. The city of Houston is also reachable, and is the largest in the state, with a host of attractions including Houston Zoo, Houston Aquarium and the famous Space Center.

Weather in East Texas, USA

The region around East Texas vacation accommodation has a humid subtropical climate, which brings warm weather for much of the year. Daytime temperatures rise above 20 degrees as early as March until November. Summers are especially hot, with highs often reaching the mid-30s or higher.

Cheap flights to East Texas, USA

Perhaps the most convenient way to reach vacation rentals in East Texas would be to fly to George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) from London Heathrow (LHR) via United Airlines or British Airways.
