Living in the sweltering silver city, there are few places where you can get in touch with your inner Daniel Boone. But just outside of town, before you get to the ocean, there's a place where you can pretend you're going over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house. Little footbridges lead across ponds, and trees stretch farther than any groves we've seen inside the Loop. It's like the Hill Country, but flatter and closer. There's an open prairie where you can sit on a bench and feel like you're Charles Ingalls about to build a homestead. There are well-labeled paths where you can see deer running. There are even some bison wandering around the 2,500-acre nature preserve.
