Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Everything is bigger in Texas – especially summertime. From digging our toes in the sand on the world’s longest barrier island to splashing the day away at some of the country’s best swimming holes, we definitely know how to live it up this time of year.
With the season starting to wind down, it’s time to pack in as many last-minute activities as possible during the coming weeks. Lucky for us, an epic Texas-shaped lazy river at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Houston just opened to the public – that’s right, you don’t even have to be an overnight guest to float! There’ll be music, food, drinks, and plain old fun in the sun every weekday from now ’till the end of summer. You can’t miss this!
