If you haven’t started your 2018 Bucket List, now is a good time to start. Our Campus Homes students have put together a list of events located right here in Texas that are worth checking out in 2018 if you haven’t already!
San Antonio Riverwalk
Besides the Alamo, the River Walk is the most popular event in San Antonio. A variety of restaurants are settled on the banks of the river if you find yourself hungry, and if you get tired of walking, boat rides down the river are available. At night, the river is lit up by beautiful lights that hang down from the trees. The River Walk makes the trip south well-worth it.

Guadalupe River Tubing
Located just outside of New Braunfels is the Guadalupe River, also known as the perfect place to tube. Although there are a few rules concerning what you can bring, alcohol and coolers are allowed. If you ever need a day to relax under the summer sun, the Guadalupe River is definitely the place for that.
Perhaps one of the most known events in Texas, Rodeo Houston is a livestock show and rodeo, but also features a carnival and lineup of famous performers every year. Some included in the previous years’ lineups are Thomas Rhett, The Chainsmokers, Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, and Sam Hunt.

The State Fair
The State Fair is a classic event that is held in Fair Park. In addition to a large carnival, the State Fair also houses the new Big Tex, after the original’s unfortunate demise in 2012. If you enjoy roller coaster rides and funnel cakes, this event is for you. The fair opens at the end of September and continues until the end of October.
