Once you settle into a room with Choice Hotels, visit these popular tourist attractions:
The Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum features pioneer memorabilia in 15 buildings on the site of a local salt dome. Oil was found in 1901 when the Lucas Gusher blew, which helped change the economy of Texas and usher in the petroleum age. Visitors can tour replicas of a general store, livery stable, saloon and post office for a real taste of history of this oilfield area.
Next, walk through the Fire Museum of Texas, an old firehouse dating back to 1927, where you will see local engines and equipment from yesteryear. Located just outside the museum is one of the world's largest fire hydrants, built in 1999 as a promotion for Disney's re-release of 101 Dalmatians. This marks a perfect place for a memorable picture!
If you are looking for Beaux-Arts Colonial architecture, tour the well-preserved McFaddin-Ward House, built in 1905. This estate has plenty of antiques showing the culture and style of the affluent family that lived there for 75 years.
Take a step back in time at the Chambers House Museum, which was built in 1906. The Chambers family lived in the house from 1914 to 2004, and the house's interior saw very few changes during that time. Visitors can take a tour through nine rooms and see original furniture and artifacts.
Challenge the family to a round or two of miniature golf at Colorado Canyon, which offers two 18-hole courses. The entertainment complex also has an arcade, the Laser Lockdown laser maze and gemstone and fossil mining.
If you want to know more about the Texas oil industry, make a stop at the Texas Energy Museum. Allow one to two hours to explore the interactive exhibits and learn about the history of oil exploration, production and refining.
