Brazos Bend State Park, TX | A Stroll through Gator Land 🐊

LOCATED SOUTHWEST OF HOUSTON NOT SOUTHEAST (oops!) This past weekend we ventured over to Brazos Bend State Park located in Needville, Texas. This beautiful swamp land is only 45 minutes to an hour from HOUSTON! Being local Houstonians, we were shocked! We have never been to this park and believe it to be somewhat of a hidden gem to a lot of Houstonians as well. While there are around 5,000 acres and 19 to 35 hiking trails available to explore at this park, we were only able to explore 2-3 of the trails in a morning. However, we did get to experience what this park is famous for... THE TEXAS ALLIGATOR. We saw 6 of these beauties throughout our hikes along with a number of mammals, birds, and amphibians. We hope you enjoy this chaotic video. Please feel free to comment below what you enjoyed!
