Garland, in many ways, is one of the best places in Texas for both a visit and to put down roots. The city has a population of roughly 238,000 people and high standards of living, which are preserved through the city’s rich and ever-changing arts culture, family-friendly neighborhoods, and easy way of life.
A heavily wooded forest trail running along a stream and teaming with wildlife, the Spring Creek Forest Preserve Nature Trail is one of Garland’s most iconic hiking spots, while the Resistol Hat Plant is every visitor’s go-to cowboy hat vendor that, in addition to offering a variety of stylish cowboy hats, also offers tours of the cowboy hat plant.
For visitors who like golf, the Duck Creek Golf Club is known as Garland’s best outdoor golf facility, and for guests who enjoy a good shop-till-you-drop day, the Firewheel Town Center boasts more than 100 premium stores from mainstream stores such as Macy’s to small independent outlets. Going back outdoors, Lake Ray Hubbard is a must-see location with the city, offering guests the chance to go fishing, or learn a water sport such as windsurfing, boating, or water skiing.
With dozens of great rentals for weekend getaways, Garland welcomes visitors with open arms. The available rentals range from single room dwellings and hotels to full-sized private homes with full kitchens and backyards. Each rental comes with high-speed wireless internet and unlimited internet data, as well as cable TV, and cozy furnishings.
