2. Lake Nasworthy

  


Who doesn't love a good day at the lake?

Lake Nasworthy covers 1,380 acres and is 29 feet deep. The most predominant fish species in the lake are largemouth bass, white crappie, channel and flathead catfish, and white bass. If you are fishing, make sure to check in with the Texas Parks and Wildlife to get your fishing license and check on local lake regulations on catch and release. You can also visit the local parks around the lake for a day of camping or just cooking out with family. Some of the most popular parks are Knickerbocker Park, Middle Concho Park, and South Concho Park. 

Spend the day fishing, swimming, or watching some boating races. Lake Nasworthy also hosts several fishing tournaments throughout the year, so be sure to check around with local clubs to see if you can join! 

The lake is sourced by the Twin Buttes Reservoir and flows out into the South Concho River. It was built in 1930 by the Texas Utilities Company to provide water to the city and surrounding areas. It is named after John R. Nasworthy, who sold the land to the city for the lake.

3. Twisted Root Burger Co. 

Looking for a place to relax, have a good beer, and have amazing food? Twisted Root is the place for you!

Twisted Root Burger Co. prides itself on the gourmet burgers they have created. All burgers are half a pound, freshly ground, with toppings made in-house (including the condiments and pickles!) and made specific to how you like it. Twisted Root was founded by Chers Jason Boso and Quincy Hart after meeting in culinary school. They opened their first Twisted Root in Deep Ellum in 2006. Twisted Root also appeared on Diner, Drive-Ins, and Dives with Guy Fieri in 2009!

Another unique aspect of Twisted Root is that $1 of every Burger of the Month goes to the Twisted Root Nursing Scholarship fund. The scholarship provides salary stipends for current Baylor Scott & White Health employees working on becoming R.N.'s or further their nursing degrees in other ways. The scholarship began after one of Twisted Root's owners, Jayson, was in a horrible accident that kept him in the hospital for 53 days. The nurses played such an important part in his healing, he knew he had to give something in return. 

When visiting, we recommend The Western Burger or the Spicy Goat! They also serve some amazing salads, such as the Chopped Mexican Salad. Pair any of your meals with Quincy's Fried Pickles and then finish off with one of their homemade custard shakes.
