To escape the Texas summer heat, many Preston Hollow families retreat to the quaint town of Crested Butte, Colo. Surrounded by the mountains, the small town hosts many Dallas families in rented summer houses. Although Crested Butte’s attraction starts with the cool summer days, it continues as visitors experience the many bike trails, family-friendly parks, cool fresh air, and the town nested in the middle. I have been coming here every summer for five years, and have been enjoying the beautiful mountainous view from my porch. I wish I could describe the beauty and laid-back vibe that radiates from this town, but you will just have to come here and experience it for yourself!
If you feel like you are melting in the heat of Texas, bring your family to Crested Butte next summer. Don’t forget your bikes!
