Letter to the Editor: A wish list for Glen Rose activities

accesories-text-editor-hiI submit this humbly as a new transplant to Somervell County. I recently met some tourists at a distant bed & breakfast who remarked how much they enjoy visiting Glen Rose. I asked them what features would make Glen Rose an even more inviting destination.

Their wish list included horseback trail riding opportunities, nature-oriented trail hiking opportunities, a zip line like some they visit near Austin,and public access to the Brazos. I realize none of this is “downtown”-oriented, but all tourism brings people to the square eventually.

Family fun activities for fall could include pumpkin painting and carving for kids, hayrides, tractor parades, pet adoption, native plant sales, wreath making, bird house construction, art sales, jewelry sales, jewelry making activities, bounce house, haunted house (in one of those vacant buildings perhaps), ghost tours, ghost stories, book sales, etc.
