Mayan Ranch, Bandera:
Number 4 on trip advisor, this highly rated real Texas working ranch set over 348 acres from the lowlands of the Medina River to high in the hills for a panoramic view of the valleys beyond. Bandera is only 10 minutes away where there’s always music playing in the many hole-in-the-wall cowboy bars. It is also located within easy reach of the city of San Antonio, the second largest city in Texas. The Mayan Ranch is the perfect Western getaway to unwind and relax and enjoy Texas cowboys’ hospitality. The Mayan Ranch has been owned and operated by the Hicks family for over half a century. Hidden behind the western scene are fantastic up-to-date- facilities and amenities with modern en-suite rooms for your convenience. A real working ranch where real cowboys work the horses and compete in rodeos, and where hearty, Texas-sized meals are served
Places for food are complemented by places for drink, from the always-tuneful Scott’s Piano Bar to the always-hoppin’ 70’s Dance Club. New libation selections include Alchemy Bar (cocktail magic central) and EA SPORTS Bar (the 50-yard-line of fun). An outdoor, seaside bar is a vacation more >>
Places for food are complemented by places for drink, from the always-tuneful Scott’s Piano Bar to the always-hoppin’ 70’s Dance Club. New libation selections include Alchemy Bar (cocktail magic central) and EA SPORTS Bar (the 50-yard-line of fun). An outdoor, seaside bar is a vacation requirement, and everyone’s favourite is aboard… whether it’s the RedFrog Rum Bar or BlueIguana Tequila Bar. (Or hey, both!) The rum bar's older brother, RedFrog Pub, features drinks, live music and traditional pub games. Topping off adult-time is the one-and-(adult)-only Serenity Retreat, where total relaxation is not only encouraged, but pretty much required.
If you’re a kid, Carnival Freedom means you’re in for a treat. Not only will you find new friends at one of three youth spaces — like the all-new Camp Ocean — but you can splash around with them in one of the many pools, speed down the Twister Waterslide, or once you dry off, challenge them to a round of mini-golf. Oh, and adults — don’t get jealous; your inner kid gets to do all this stuff too!
Up on stage is Playlist Productions, featuring songs you know… and dance moves you’ll soon be using. And for a chance to get up on stage yourself, there’s Hasbro, The Game Show, where kids of all ages — even you, grandma — compete in larger-than-life Hasbro games come to life!
And for the cherry on top… it’s actually called Cherry On Top. It’s the spot for something special, whether that something’s a little something sweet — or simply a little something to sweeten a special occasion.<< less
