La Grange, TX Hover Cruise
Saturday, May 12, 2018, 9:00 AM until Sunday, May 13, 2018, 2:00 PM
Buffalo Trail Park
Boat Ramp Road
La Grange, TX 78945
Located in La Grange, TX, made famous by ZZ Top, the Colorado River offers an exiting new river to explore. The plan is to leave Buffalo Trail Park around 10AM on Saturday morning and fly upriver to Smithville, TX and back. When we get back, we'll hang out and visit with people who stop by and give rides, talk hovercraft and enjoy the afternoon. Sunday will be unstructured and we can decide if we want to fly downriver or back upriver or hang out and give people rides.
Several hotels are nearby including the Hampton Inn at 1624 W State Hwy 71, La Grange, TX 78945 (979) 968-4900, Executive Inn & Suites of La Grange at 1708 TX-71 BUS, La Grange, TX 78945 (979) 968-2600 and the Best Western La Grange Inn & Suites at 600 E Hwy 71 Business, La Grange, TX 78945

La Grange is located about half way between Austin and Houston on Highway 71. When arriving in La Grange, take the exit for Hwy 159 and head south into town. This will turn into Travis Street and just stay on it until you see the Colorado River bridge and turn left just before crossing the bridge. The boat ramp is located at the end of Boat Ramp Drive. See you there!
