Hike With Llamas At ShangriLlama In Texas

Katie Lawrence, onlyinyourstate.com

Here in Texas, we’re pretty crazy about llamas. We can camp, drink beer, and even hike with them! If you’re interested in the latter, look no further than ShangriLlama in Royse City. This replica Irish castle is home to the most adorable pack of llamas you’ve ever seen, and visitors can walk with them around the lush, fairytale landscape. We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

Texas isn’t exactly brimming with castles, so this one in Royse City looks a tad misplaced. Even more unusual than the castle itself, however, is who lives there.
