Is Lake Whitney the greatest lake of all?

A vacation in Texas is all about the Great Outdoors. Book a Lake Whitney vacation rental and have access to waterskiing, wakeboarding, and sailing. A big draw to the area is its abundance of great fishing. Folk come from across the state to catch bass and catfish, while birders flock here to spot more than 300 different varieties. If you'd rather score a birdie of your own, try 1 of the many golf courses near the lake. After dark, relax with a chilled local brew and roast your catch on the barbecue - it's what vacation memories are made of.

Weather

Sunscreen, sunscreen, we all scream for sunscreen

Lake Whitney is a popular year-round destination. The summer months are hot, hot, hot, and sweltering Texans flock to cool down in the lake's chilled, clean waters. However, the best time to visit is in fall, between September and November, when the temperatures are at a more comfortable 70-80 degrees and the crowds have thinned out. For the best choice of Lake Whitney vacation rentals, visit in winter, which is quieter still, but still has a fair share of sunny days. The mercury drops to around 50-60 degrees, so perhaps pack a jacket for cooler evenings.
