TOP 6 ITEMS ON THE ‘MUST DO’ LIST WHEN NOT STAYING IN A HOTEL IN CANTON TX

hotel canton tx | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

6. When not staying in a hotel in Canton TX visit the beautiful Edgewood Heritage Park historic outdoor museum and the Blackwell House, Canton’s oldest residence.   As described on their website, this outdoor museum encompasses 20 authentically restored and furnished structures representing rural life in East Texas from the 1800′s to the 1920′s.

5 .  If golfing is your thing, you won’t want to miss visiting the championship Twin Lakes Golf Course.  Ranked by Texas Outside as one of the top 10 golf facilities in Texas.  Twin Lakes was designed to challenge serious players while still giving novices a great place to learn to play.  The picturesque course was designed around two beautiful lakes and a 1,000 acre tree farm giving the course a beautiful tranquility.

4.  When not staying in a hotel in Canton TX we recommend visiting theYesterland Farm for a nostalgic step back in time — it’s old-fashioned fun on the farm with a new twist! From Fall festivities to a holiday wonderland of Christmas trees and Santa, it’s all farm-tastic family entertainment.

3.  For a change of pace, visit the Edwin L. Cox, Jr., Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center (TFFC).  The TFFC website indicates they combine visitation and outdoor education with a production fish hatchery. The Center’s mission is to provide an educational, entertaining visitor experience that promotes freshwater sport fishing and the enhancement, conservation and stewardship of aquatic resources in Texas. 

2. TripAdvisor.com describes Canton’s First Monday Trade Days as the self-professed oldest and largest flea market in the United States including more than 7,000 vendors.  The event draws up to 500,000 people and is held each month on the Thursday through Sunday preceding the first Monday of the month.  If you want to visit First Monday Trade Days be sure to book your hotel in Canton TX far in advance, as accommodations fill fast!  

And FINALLY and most importantly:

1. Don’t stay in a hotel in Canton TX!  Instead, stay in the fabulous resort at Mill Creek Ranch Resort where not only will you have beautiful and relaxing accommodations, you’ll enjoy our fabulous amenities including: concierge service; stocked fishing ponds; paddle boats; live music, full bar and great food every Friday night at “The Creek” in the Grand Lodge; swimming pools; hot tub; beautiful playground; disc golf course; places for bike riding; a dog park; volleyball; basketball; horse shoes; etc.  You get the idea, there’s truly something for everyone at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.

Planning a Reunion Near Dallas? Special Events Are Even More Special at Mill Creek Ranch Resort

special events dallasReunions can be a great way to gather your family and catch up with family members you haven’t seen in a while (or new ones you might not have met yet!). If you have a large group you’re trying to gather, the planning process can seem overwhelming. Here are a few tips to help smooth the process from the reunion planning pros at Mill Creek Ranch Resort, a Dallas special events venue.

First, if several families are involved, you will need to start talking to them early to gauge their interest and availability. You may want to start this up to six months to a year in advance, depending on how many people will be involved. While you’re talking to them, be alert for any signs that they might be willing to help! The more help, the better. Gather email addresses or start a facebook group for easier communication.

When you’ve got a good idea of when and how many people will be interested in attending, you can pick a venue. Keep in mind that Dallas special events venues can require plenty of advance notice for large groups, so call as soon as you can to make reservations for your 2014 weekend reunion. You will also want to be sure you are aware of any family members with special needs and make sure the venue you have chosen can accommodate them (wheelchair accessibility, etc). Mill Creek Ranch Resorts has kept our guests with special needs in mind in our facility designs from cabins to meeting spaces.

Once you have reservations, it’s time to plan meals and activities. Remember everybody who said they’d be willing to help? Put them to work! Some tasks to delegate could include ordering T-shirts, handling the money, organizing menus (or talking to the caterer), planning games for the kids or scheduling activities, games and prizes, handling presentations or acting as Master of Ceremonies. If you have a photographer in the family, see if they’ll take pictures. Keep everybody up to date on who’s doing what. If you’ve got an email or facebook group going, posting updates will not only keep everyone informed, it’ll keep everyone excited about the upcoming reunion. If you find that some of these things cannot be handled in the family, remember that our Dallas special events venue can help you with the planning.

At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, event planning is a big part of what we do. Don’t hesitate to call us and see what we can help with. Whether it’s ideas for activities, information about fun things to do in the area, catering services, or questions about our amenities, we love to help!

Call 877-927-3439 now to book your 2014 weekend reunion. Still want to give 2013 a whirl?? We are offering special rates for 2013 reunion events held on a weekday, or if your family prefers a cooler Fall weekend reunion we still have availability then too!
