Few things are more fun than enjoying the beautiful Texas countryside when the autumn leaves are turning from green to red and the blistering heat begins to take a back seat to crisper fall air. 40 miles west of San Antonio is the perfect place to venture out on a Saturday and experience some good old-fashioned, family fun. Hondo, Texas's best kept secret (or maybe not a secret anymore) is Graff 7A Ranch, home of South Texas Maize!  


While other parts of the country have been experiencing cooler air for weeks now, Texas is just now beginning to feel relief from the long, hot summer. So the good news about this special ranch and all its fall festivities is that it lasts until November 26! With a laundry list of different activities that everyone in your family will enjoy, it's worth the drive to spend a day on the Graff's ranch. Check out the list of everything there is to do:

  • 7-acre maze

  • Hay ride

  • Goat walk

  • Paw Paw's pig races

  • Haybale jump

  • Campfire sites

  • Pumpkin patch

  • Plenty of concessions

  • And a brand new Dance Hall with live music on Saturday nights

But we can't begin to do it justice, so we'll let their map do the talking:

We hope you'll find time to take the short drive to see this beautiful ranch during the gorgeous fall season in Texas! Click here for directions and more info! (We think the trip is best taken in a MINI Convertible with the top down, but we might be biased? :))
