It's Spring time in Central Texas! As temps start to heat up, lots of folks will be looking to get outdoors.

BLORA is officially open, so consider it an option.

Truth be told, I haven't been to BLORA yet. I've heard it's pretty awesome and the BLORA "Nature in Lights" Christmas lights are a must see. I did have plans to go see those lights last Christmas, but coronavirus forced me to stay behind while the rest of the family went.

The pics I saw were pretty good, but I was told you have to see it in person to really get the full experience. As long as no new pandemics hit, I'll be sure to see it for myself this year.

from the Fort Hood Sentinel reports that the Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area, BLORA, is now open with pavilions available for rent.

That's great news for those looking to make their plans early for camping. Cottages are available for rent, but there are so many other things to do at BLORA. Tent camping, RV camping, plus boating, fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking, paintball and an archery range.

BLORA is available for both military members and civilians, but only people with a military ID can rent cottages, pavilions, or kayaks. Plus any rental costs will be cheaper for military as well.
