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.”

Bolivar Beach Club & RV Resort is set to open in Crystal Beach on the Texas Gulf Coast as a premier RV resort and entertainment venue. The 150-acre beachfront resort will feature more than 500 RV sites and an amenity package that includes a 5-acre entertainment park with beachside concerts year-round. Throughout the resort, visitors will also have access to luxury concert suites, a turf football field, a food truck park, large resort pool and a fleet of golf cart rentals.

 

As COVID-19 restrictions ease, in-person meetings are making a comeback. 

“After a year of working in virtual environments, businesses of all sizes are finding the need to reconnect face-to-face in meaningful ways,” says Lisa Fasbender, general manager of the 186-acre Margaritaville Lake Resort on Lake Conroe in Conroe. “Our ability to host a meeting that combines serious learning with serious fun makes Margaritaville Lake Resort the ideal setting to collaborate and focus on team building.”

The resort offers:
