NEW - Day Trip Advisor

We are pleased to add a new section to our site. It's for suggestions of places to make a short day trip from the Mesquite area. This month we are suggesting two locations that are within a few miles of each other in East Texas near Mineola, and are less than 2 hours from the Mesquite area.

Mineola Nature Preserve

Website
The Mineola Nature Preserve on the Sabine River encompasses 2,911 acres located in Wood County, and is home to East Texas species of critters that can fly, walk, crawl, and slither, and home to more than 193 species of birds, numerous wildlife, buffalo, longhorn cattle, and a pristine wetlands environment. Imagine walking along a railroad bed built in the 1880s as you step back in history. Owned by the City of Mineola, this is part of a comprehensive development plan to protect our natural wildlife and habitat for future generations. This pristine area is an escape to the quiet of nature and the solitude of yesteryear. A great place for the family and wonderful photography opportunities. The Mineola Nature Preserve just a 1 1/2 miles south of Mineola. Google Map Location

Grand Oaks Vineyard & Winery

Website
The Grand Oaks Vineyards & Winery is amid forests of oak, cedar and pine on hillsides overlooking the Mineola Nature Preserve on the Sabine River. Fine wines and beautiful vines are found here just 10 minutes from Mineola; only 90 miles from Dallas. Our Wine Tasting Room with its wraparound covered patio and scenic surrounds offer a great place to enjoy our wines in our East Texas setting. Browse our site, visit us on Facebook and come share wine with us in the heart of Mineola Wine Country. Google Map Location
