It’s a Beautiful Day!
Want and/or need to get away? Load up the kids and head out west! In less than 2 hours, you could be on the water, far away from everyday life and stress. On the banks of Possum Kingdom Lake is a brand new resort with beautiful views from every suite, perfect for families. It’s called Lush, and it is fabulous! At Lush, you can enjoy lake living at its best. There’s a kid-friendly pool which is heated in the busy times of the cooler months, fishing, hiking, kayaks, jet skis, paddleboards, and a sand play area for the little ones, plus a game room. You can bring your own boat or rent one from the resort and tube, ski, or simply anchor out and swim. Every suite has a separate bedroom, a fully-stocked kitchen, and a very large balcony. If you need more space or want to go with another family, suites can be connected. A grocery-stocking service is available, or you can bring whatever food items you may need. There’s a bar and fun live music that everyone in the family will enjoy. Some suites are still available for Spring Break, so hurry up and grab your sand bucket and shovel and get ready to make some memorable family vacation plans! (The pool will be heated for Spring Break!)
You can get more information on Lush at www.possumkingdomlushresort.com. If you have any questions, call the reservation office, and they will be pleased to help you!

Anywhere with a beach!
We always loved going to Port A for spring break! But this is way closer so we’d love to go there instead 🙂

My favorite is Fredericksburg wine country!
I heard there is scuba diving near PK and that would have to be my favorite spring break so far – scuba diving in Florida with my hubby.
New Orleans, Austin or the Texas Hill Country have been our favorite spring break destinations! We’ve never been to Possum Kingdom and would love the opportunity to try out Lush. It looks fantastic!
We wanna go!!!! Lost Pines is where we have gone and are going but my ❤️ will forever be in PaloPinto and Graford counties. Love me some PK!!!!!
Our former favorite spring break spot is the Broadmoor! It’s a tad chilly at spring break, but still beautiful!
My favorite spring break location was Galveston Island with my family a few years ago. This BEAUTIFUL house on Possum Kingdom Lake looks like a dream come true!
