The Cliffs Resort on Possum Kingdom Lake - Graford
Do you really need a reason to visit a resort that sits along the shorts of a lake called "Possum Kingdom?" When your friends ask where you're going, you can say, "Possum Kingdom!" Well, if you do need reasons, here are a few: The resort doesn't really sit on the shores of Possum Kingdom Lake, it sits about 100 feet above the shores, cliffside, overlooking the lake. Which is a beautiful sight. Accommodations include The Inn, or one-bedroom condominiums which also overlook the lake. The Chaparral Grille serves an eclectic mix of food (try a pasta dish!) and is a great place to watch the sun set over the water. And golf? The Cliffs' golf course features several holes that play cliffside, including the 18th that requires a short carry from one cliff to another. But watch out: This course has long had a reputation as one of the toughest in Texas, so make sure you choose an appropriate set of tees.

Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa - San Antonio
The Hyatt Hill Country is surrounded by a heavy cover of trees that serves to separate this outstanding resort from its surroundings, offering a sense of seclusion. It sits on 200 acres of former ranchland and is directly across a highway from Sea World San Antonio - a great spot if you've got children. It's also just 15 minutes from Six Flags Fiesta Texas and 20 minutes from Downtown San Antonio, the Alamo and the River Walk. Another thing the kids will love: A 4-acre water playground surrounds a swimming pool that's loved by adults, too.

Mill Creek Inn and Golf Club - Salado
Only 45 minutes from Austin, visitors to Mill Creek feel a world away. The small town of Salado - named for the spring-fed river that flows nearby - is a haven for antiquers and history buffs. Eighteen buildings in town are on the National Registry of Historic Places. Lodging at Mill Creek is limited - only 30 units total. There are 20 condiminiums, six suites and four townhomes situated throughout the golf course. It's more like a very large bed-and-breakfast than a resort, really, but that creates a quaint and quiet atmosphere. There are 27 holes of golf at Mill Creek, all designed by famed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. One of Mill Creek's greens is heart-shaped, to let all the golfers know they are in the heart of Texas. Salado Creek winds through the course and comes into play on half the holes.
