Spring has swept across the Lone Star State, bringing with it a wave of blooming flowers.

With more than 90 Texas State Parks and 5,000 species of wildflowers, choosing where to visit can be an overwhelming and tough choice.

Thankfully, Texas Parks and Wildlife officials have been hard at work tracking which state parks are experiencing these powerful displays of nature.

“Spring wildflower displays have been glorious in East, Central, North and coastal Texas recently,” said Texas Parks Wildlife botanist  Jason Singhurst in a prepared statement. “As more rain is expected over the next few weeks, we should expect increasing splendor in West Texas and other parts of the Lone Star State.”

Fort Boggy State Park, roughly 2 hours from Houston; Huntsville State Park, only an hour away; Lockhart State Park, close to San Marcos and around two and half hours from Houston; McKinney Falls State Park in Austin, and Palmetto State Park, between two and two and a half hours from Houston.
