Most Texans don’t get to experience a white winter. However, the Lone Star State offers a long list of activities to experience during the chilly months ahead. Whether you’re looking for outdoor fun or something a little cozier indoors, we’ve got just the thing for you. Let’s explore the top four winter activities you can enjoy in the vibrant Texas city of Lewisville.
Sample an Adult Beverage
When winter’s blustery weather keeps you indoors, head to your local Lewisville distillery. Warm-up with a glass of spirits or mug of craft beer courtesy of one the area’s breweries. Visit Cobra Brewing Company at 146 Whatley Ave. on a Friday or Saturday and tour this popular hometown venue. Don’t leave without a pint of the “Best Mistake.” It’s a brownie stout that you won’t soon forget.
If whiskey is more your style, stop over and see the folks at Bendt Distillery at 225 S. Charles St. This local distillery makes fine bourbon, rum, and single malt whiskey entirely in-house. Embark on a tour on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, then enjoy live music and chow down on vittles from on-site food truck vendors.
The season’s cooler temperatures encourage Texans to head outdoors and play. Lewisville Lake Park is a large, man-made reservoir at Lake Park Road and Mill Street. The breathtaking scenery will rejuvenate your spirit, while the fresh air and exercise energize your limbs. Take your fishing poles, have a picnic, or play a round of golf on the 18-hole course.
Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area is nestled near the Trinity River between a gloriously expansive prairie and the neighboring forest. It’s open daily year-round for guided nature walks, night hikes, and kayak tours. Launch your own expedition and go fishing, birding, or camping.
Chilly weather is the ideal time to get cozy with someone you love. Why not take a hot air balloon flight? Rohr Balloons in nearby Princeton offers couples a memorable experience soaring over Lewisville and the surrounding area. From spectacular views to a champagne toast, love is definitely in the air this winter.
Curl up with a Good Book
From your local used book store to the neighborhood library, one way to enjoy the season is to spend a long winter’s night with the company of a good book. During the warmer months, we’re busy running about. Take this special time of year to catch up on your reading.
The Lewisville Public Library is located at 1197 W Main St. and offers a reader’s group that meets the second Sunday of each month from 2 to 3 p.m. Browse the shelves for a variety of popular and literary fiction or head to a book shop for a whole different experience. Half Price Books in the Vista Ridge plaza is a family-owned chain that buys and sells books, music, and movies.
