Spring has sprung, and you know what that means. America turns to its other favorite past time: fishing.
Nowadays, people have all the more reason to dust off their fishing rods and head to New England, Florida and spots like this Texas vacation home. What’s the point of forking over $30 for striped bass at a fancy pants restaurant when you can catch it yourself, grill it over charcoal and enjoy it on the stone patio?
From this five-bedroom vacation rental, hear the rush of waters from Sulfur Creek, where you’ll be able to cast your line, swim, tube and skip rocks. Four of the five rooms have french doors that lead to the pool, including a gameroom for the kiddies.
If you’ve had enough of Mother Nature, flee to the city–Austin, just 45 miles away–for 6th Street nightlife and delicious Southern Cuisine.
But back to the fishing.
For anglers who like to change up the scenery during their trips, head to nearby Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake State Park and Colorado State Park for clear skies and wide waters.

Where should we go with a party of six?" No stranger to travel--and traveling with kids--she is a young mom who ODs on the Internet when it comes to planning family trips or buying clothes. Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
