Born and raised in Bryan, about 90 miles east of Village of Salado, Chadley Hollas, Village of Salado’s director of tourism, says he came to the town with one goal: to help Salado become Texas’ best small destination. His favorite thing about his adopted hometown is the people. “They are quirky, creative and hospitable—a neat combination that makes for many good conversations,” says Hollas.

The community has more than 220 guest rooms, ranging from branded and boutique hotels to bed and breakfasts. “We currently have more than 17,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, most of which is either on or a short walk to Main Street. Soon, the iconic Stagecoach Inn will open an additional 3,200 square feet of newly renovated meeting space,” says Hollas.

Hollas’ top three reasons to host your next meeting or event in the Village of Salado are:

“Salado is the closest destination to the population center of Texas. That means you can host an event that is close to everyone.”

“Salado allows your attendees to escape the meeting rooms and join some of our artists for unique experiences—to hand-blow your own drinking glass at Salado Glassworks, for example.”

“Imagine your ideal meeting destination: multiple venue choices, world-class dining, refined service, a beautiful, natural setting and unique opportunities for team-building, all within a short walk from each other. You just imagined the Village of Salado.”

He adds, “While there are many exciting things to do in Salado, my favorite has to be the serenity of sitting beside Salado Creek at our local brewery, Barrow Brewing Co., while sipping on a pint. After hanging out with the folks at Salado Glassworks, of course.”

Omni PGA Frisco Resort, scheduled to open in spring 2023, is now open for group booking requests. 

Located in Frisco, 30 miles north of Dallas, the 500-room resort will feature more than 127,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, including a 22,000-square-foot grand ballroom, an 11,500-square-foot junior ballroom and a 5,000-square-foot event pavilion.

 

Moody Center, a multi-purpose venue located in downtown Austin, opened its doors this past April. The sold-out grand opening show was a Texas-sized celebration featuring artist George Strait with special guests Willie Nelson & Family and Randy Rogers Band.
