Magical experiences await you on a day trip to Palestine, TX

Sometimes you just have to get out of town, but you don’t really have the time or budget to go that far.

I love what TikTok Creator, MyCurlyAdventures, shares about their day trip to Palestine, TX. Just a short drive, maybe about an hour, which is very do for a day trip with a significant other or friends.

He shows how he rode on the historic Texas State Railroad and tasted pies at Oxbow Bakery and even visited Texas Eilenberger’s oldest operating bakery. They had a picnic by the lake, discovered goat yoga, hiked to a waterfall and admired the fairytale garden.

Did you know that Palestine offers a lot of magical experiences? I certainly don’t. Let’s start with the train.

The Texas State Railroad offers magnificent views of Piney Woods in East Texas from the perspective of a historic train. We invite you to “take a deep breath, have a drink and relax while losing yourself on a four-hour, 25-mile rail ride in Piney Woods, East Texas, where history is only part of the journey. ‘

The railroad was built in 1881 by prisoners at the East Texas Penitentiary. A 1.3-mile track was built. In 1909, the final railway connections were made, connecting Rusko with Palestine. Traveling by train allows you to relax in refurbished historic cars and use a concession car. Some tickets allow you to host parties in private cars with free champagne. He has an hour to explore an adjacent park in Rusk before returning to Palestine Depot.

Now let’s get to the bakery. He stopped at two different bakeries. The first is famous for its pies. Enjoy the slices or an entire pie as you step back in time. The bakery is located in the Old Town of Palestine, in a building built in the 1900s. He also visited the oldest baker in Texas. Eilenberger’s has been shining since 1898. You can enjoy cookies, pastries and sweets at this historic bakery or take them all over the country.

They also enjoyed the fresh air of Piney Woods: picnicking on Lake Palestine, hiking to Wolf Creek Lake Falls, and trying goat yoga. At Davey Dogwood Park, they also experienced the charm of fairy gardens, beautiful miniature fairytale houses set in nature.

Honestly, it seems like a long weekend trip for me. What about you? Could you incorporate these amazing experiences into one day? I would split them into two and stay at the nearby resort of Villages where you can enjoy the indoor water park and lake views.

There is a wooden house in Ladonia, TX made of shipping containers

This is an extremely unique wooden house that is not really a wooden house because it seems to be too difficult for a tree to support! But there are plenty of trees in this place.
