Granbury and Glen Rose Weekend Trip

For our May getaway we enjoyed a fun and relaxing weekend in Granbury and Glen Rose, Texas, an easy 1 1/2 drive from our home. Overall, the perfect weekend trip! Our farmhouse cabin, The Neri Place, was fabulous - beautiful, private, convenient, and full of charm. We enjoyed the view of Comanche Peak, wildlife sightings - deer, frogs, lizards, cows, and the other amenities of the farmhouse, it is definitely recommended. We'll have to go back to Dinosaur Valley with friends to camp out and tackle the rest of the trails too.

Friday: Granbury
  • Drove to Granbury
  • Checked in and explored our farmhouse cabin, The Neri Place
  • Explored downtown Granbury and went in a few shops on the square
  • Dinner at Don Ayala, picked it because of the patio, next time I'd prefer the Cajun Cafe or a different restaurant on the square
Saturday: Glen Rose - Dino time!
  • Breakfast at the farmhouse - the stocked fridge was a great surprise
  • Drove to Dinosaur Valley State Park, just 20 minutes from the farmhouse
  • Spent the day hiking and exploring the park, we were able to view two great sets of tracks, next time we'll definitely have to bring Chaco's so we can cross the high water to get to the other set of trails
  • Enjoyed a picnic lunch on the trail at the park
  • Drove through the cute town of Glen Rose
  • Back to the farmhouse to relax and grill for dinner
Sunday: Home Again
  • Coffee on the patio and another great breakfast
  • Drove home - stopped and picked up Duncan from his relaxing getaway at MH's house
