Default Muenster trip

It's a pretty little town, but there isn't a whole lot to do there. A couple of nice shops and a great German restaurant. You might want to go during Oktoberfest, though. They are listed on the internet. You also might consider Gainesville and Whitesboro, as well as a weekend speciality and antiques shop trip down 377 from Whitesboro through Collinsville, Tioga, Pilot Point, and Aubrey. There is also a berry farm and lavender ranch/farm between Gainesville and Whitesboro. I have not been to either, but I found them on the internet and they look interesting. I'm from Pottsboro and would love to find some day-trip groups.

And since you're in the area, you may as well go here, too:
