Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 90-minute guided ATV ride at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort in Glen Rose (a $90 value).
The Rough Creek Lodge and Resort balances glamour and nature to create a rustic resort rife with adventurous treks through wild landscape. The hideout sits on a scenic and spacious 11,000 acres at the edge of Texas Hill Country. A 90-minute ATV excursion lets gung-ho getters-away express their disdain for roads with the roaring horsepower of a four-wheeled horseless carriage. All guests will vroom under the protective expertise of a watchful guide, with terrain and routes suited for any skill level and any age above 16. Water, goggles, and helmets are provided to ensure safe automotive trail-dusting. On the steel back of a motorized steed, the wind is swifter, the noon is higher, and the range is as open as it was in the days of our robo-cowboy forefathers.
Shop Across Texas named Rough Creek Lodge and Resort the Best Texas Weekend Getaway in 2008.

- We visited RCL this past weekend for the first time as a family get-a-way and had a great time. Every one of the staff members we encountered were helpful, friendly, and service-orientated. – A W., Yelp, 2/14/11
- Rough Creek Lodge met (and surpassed) our expectations. We enjoyed riding on Kawasaki mules and RTVs throughout the vast property. – mimique55711, TripAdvisor
