It’s that time of the year for the annual winter migration of RV snowbirds to be wheeling their way south from the colder reaches of Canada and the northern tier of the United States.
One of the most popular routes is through the historically rich center of Texas to the Gulf Coast, taking travelers near the town of Goliad in the South Texas Plains.
Now through December, the Mission Espiritu Santo Mission is a peaceful place to rejoice in the holiday spirit by celebrating its “History in Lights,” from 6 to 10 p.m. each day. For more information (click here).

Also, if you are looking for a place to camp, the Goliad State Park campground has sites suitable for all types and lengths of recreation vehicles including many pull through sites with full hookups. (Click here for more information)
