I am on the hunt for the best social distancing adventures in Texas. I found this hidden gem located outside of Houston in a small city called Simonton. This is the perfect Texas spot to have some fun on the farm.

I have partnered with Blessington Farms for this post. The best part for me is they had zero restrictions when it came to my blog post. This is my honest opinion.

Slide Mountain

This was my kids favorite area. The slides are extremely fast and exciting. My mother-in-law was going so fast it spinned her backwards down the slide. It was hilarious.

Trolly Swing

Let me start by saying there is a weight requirement of 100 pounds, that I did not see until AFTER I had a blast on the swing. I felt like Peter Pan!

A day on the farm would not be complete without fishing at the lake. The largest catfish caught at their lake was 14 pounds. Wow!
