  • I purchased tickets for The Twilight Dinner Cruise and invited my husband and mom. It was a fun and pleasant way to spend some time off! I suggest getting there a little early so you can choose your table (make sure you get in line). I was first in line and waited an hour so that I was able to choose the desired table (Worth it)! I went in March so the weather was perfect although I do regret not bringing a jacket. The cruise was relaxing and you get to have dinner while you are surrounded by beautiful mountains! I gave it 4 stars because the chicken was extremely under-cooked however, everything else was great including dessert! Service was 5 stars! The cruise comes with your choice of Iced tea, Coffee or Lemonade. Fun way to spend some extra free-time!
  • A must-do if you visit canyon Lake. Went on 90 minute day tour. Beautiful scenery, great view of natural wildlife, excellent info given by steamboat captain. You will not be disappointed unless you don't take this tour!
