I am in the tourism business and active with the geneology and historical society. I studied tourism and hospitality and was a travel agent for many years. I love talking about the towns history and meeting descendants from some of the original families of the area. I discovered the benefits of vacation rentals during my travels with one of my daughters and her family. The space and amenities are greater especially when traveling with kids. My experience in traveling, domestic and abroad, has given me the knowledge and desire to help others make their visit a happy and enjoyable one.
San Elizario-I grew up here and I'm enjoying watching the transformation as artists and merchants are flocking to the area. It is a hidden gem rich in history.
Mostly I enjoy driving around and looking at the pecan trees and the ready to harvest cotton in the fields. I like the agricultural setting small town feel. It's a nice getaway, a change of pace with fresh air that my daughters enjoy as well when they come for a visit.
