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:

But the differences are numerous and remarkable!

Although hotel rooms generally have room for a bed to sleep in and a television to watch, Texas vacation rentals at Mill Creek Ranch Resort are upscale fully furnished cottage units with a fully equipped kitchen where all you need bring is the food! We also have a great living space where you can relax, much better than making that bed your sofa and recliner!texas vacation rentals | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

At Mill Creek Ranch Resort Texas vacation rentals you won’t have to place your vacation plans on hold in order to get your laundry done. You’ll find a private washer and dryer in your unit so you can start the laundry in the morning on your way out the door to enjoy some fun, and finish the laundry when you come back in the evening.

Looking for a Hotel in Canton, TX? Come Stay in Luxury at Mill Creek Ranch Resort

canton tx hotelFor four days every month, Canton, TX hosts up to 400,000 visitors, which means that our charming, small town temporarily becomes the seventh most populated city in the state! World Famous First Monday Trade Days, held the Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday before the first Monday of each month, is an outdoor market so big that shoppers can’t possibly take it all in in one day. Of course, Canton has shopping, events and fun things to do all month long, but Trade Days deserve every bit of attention that they get. With over 7,000 vendors selling everything from antiques and hand-crafted furniture to shoes, jewelry and salsa, there is simply something for everyone. Visitors love Canton, and Canton loves its visitors.

Because First Monday Trade Days are so popular, a hotel in Canton, TX is in high demand. If you really want to make your stay special, Mill Creek Ranch is your best option with amenities that go above and beyond what you would expect from the average hotel room. We have resort pools, stocked ponds, a playground, live music, paddle boats, and the list goes on and on! Since Trade Days are so popular, you will want to call ahead if you plan to visit Mill Creek Ranch on a Trade Days weekend. Along with making reservations early and ditching that hotel in Canton idea, here are some other tips that will help you have the most First Monday Fun:

  • Go early. Most vendors open at 8am and close at 6pm The least crowded time of day is just as it opens. Especially if you are staying for several days, consider that going early each day may allow you to leave early, which leaves you free time to enjoy our resort pool, relax in the jacuzzi or even go fishing while others fight the later crowds.
  • Don’t worry about a little rain. The market is open rain or shine (and a little rain can actually work to your advantage since it can clear out the crowds).
  • Dress in comfortable layers. Remember that Texas weather can change in the blink of an eye. A chilly morning can become a very warm afternoon. Also, you’ll be doing a lot of walking, so wear good walking shoes. Don’t forget to rent or buy a cart to carry your purchased items, you will be glad you did.
  • Bring cash and a checkbook, because not all vendors will take a credit card.
  • Have fun!
