Bell County Museum

Reviewed By M J - Austin, Texas

My husband and I toured Bell County Museum on a Saturday afternoon. The museum is free, small (or big for a small town), not crowded, very interesting and located about 1 block north of the courthouse. The museum focuses on Bell County history. The staff was helpful as well. There is a donation box at the entrance/exit and was worth a donation. The museum is certainly worth at least a 30 minute visit.

University of Mary Hardin Baylor

Reviewed By Becky L - Houston, Texas

Very well organized! Student guides were very friendly and helpful. All of the breakout sessions were VERY informative and considerate of first time college parents. The best part was meeting one on one with an advisor from the student's major who set up the student's class schedule for the Fall. Also, the RA from the dorm was available for a dorm tour. The most fun part for the students was the twitter activities going on all day.

This has been my private getaway for going on 25 yrs now. Somedays it is bristling to the brim with people and other weekends it is absolutely as quiet as a schoolyard during Summer Vacation. Great place to relax and unwind a bit. Great lake for everything from fishing to diving.

Belton Lake

Reviewed By Raymond M - Belton, Texas

Lake Belton is a Great Lake to explore by kayak. Not to say you can't use your ski boat or fishing rig, rather I'm trying to say there are great areas to see under your own power. The lake is in a river bed which cut a canyon down through the local limestone. The lake has lots of quiet coves where you can paddle and listen to the quiet of the morning. A bird calling out may be the only sound other than the waves hitting your kayak.

I have to say this is my favorite way to see the lake. Maybe I only get to see a cove or two each trip, but each cove is unique and well worth exploring.

The lake is large and you can spend hours riding around on a motor powered boat, skiing or tubing. The unique feature is the west side of the lake is part of Ft. Hood, so there is just wilderness to see.

Live Oak Ridge Park

Reviewed By 829Claudia - Thomasville, Georgia

Spent 3 days camping looking at Belton Lake and dam. Our grandson attends Mary Harden Baylor which is 10 minutes from the park. Park is very clean and our site had a covered area over the picnic table. Not all sites have these. Bathroom was all tile and very clean. We enjoyed being so close to all the shopping areas and restaurants . Will return this park is a very run park.

Summer Fun Waterpark

Reviewed By Fgreen13

The park is way over priced and the owner is beyond rude. They made a mistake on pricing and told me to pretty much go *&$^# myself in an email after canceling my ticket. Told me to re-buy them at the adjusted price. The mistake was on their end but I got screwed over it. I have never been spoken to in such a way. I thought it was a teenager being a butt, but it was the owner!!! Shocked and beyond disappointed.

Confederate Park

My husband and I visited Confederate Park on a Saturday afternoon. It is located behind the Gin and just one block south of the courthouse in downtown Belton. Hike & Bike Trail and a pretty river/creek goes through this park.The park is pretty, not crowded, has ducks and worth at least a 15 minute stop.

Vintage Daze

Reviewed By M J - Austin, Texas

My husband and I went to Vintage Daze on a Saturday afternoon. The antique store is less than a block east of the courthouse. It is medium size and has lots of stuff in the basement as well. We did not find anything to buy on this trip but there are some really interesting items for sale. The store is certain worth a stop if you are looking for antiques.
