  1. Very nice resorts to stay in Texas. I haven’t visited this state yet, but I would surely love to. La Cantera seems quite outstanding. All that lush vegetation. I’m surprised to see that in Texas where it’s so dry.

    1. Anda – You need to visit Texas soon, there is so much to see and experience and the food is awesome and Texas sized!!

  2. Happy I learned about that, I didn’t know any of these places. I would stay at La Cantera resort, although it must be really expensive if it’s referred as one of the world’s best place to stay!

    1. Actually it was not Marie, it was comparable to most other resorts in the area. It is a beautiful property and sunsets were the best!

  3. All those places sounds wonderful. I think the Westin La Cantera would be my pick though. 5 pools to choose from! That’d be awesome! And the sunset with a glass of Texas wine, that sounds lovely!

  4. Until now I wasn’t aware of these locations. I have been to Austin a few times but never stayed at the Four Seasons. Maybe next time, I will try to stay there, however, not during the spring break.
