Spice Up New Year’s Eve at Picosa Ranch Resort
Whether your plans for New Year’s Eve 2012 call for an intimate party for two or a blowout for a few dozen of your closest friends, Picosa Ranch Resort in South Texas can help create the perfect celebration. This all-inclusive resort located 30 minutes south of San Antonio, near the town of Floresville, is steeped in authentic South Texas atmosphere and history.
Once the working ranch home of former Texas Governor John Connally, Picosa Ranch Resort now invites leisure travelers to experience true South Texas hospitality with luxurious accommodations, fine dining opportunities and activities including photo safaris, fishing, biking, skeet shooting, horseback riding and soothing spa treatments.
For New Year’s Eve 2012, Picosa Ranch Resort welcomes groups of up to 42 guests to ring in the New Year under the big star-filled South Texas sky. Whether it’s just the two of you or the whole gang, the entire 2,800-acre ranch is yours. No one for miles around will be able to hear the noise you decide to make as you ring in the New Year. Lights can be strung outside amid 100-year-old oak trees to create an al fresco dance floor during the usually mild winter temperatures. Or choose one of the two large lodge spaces for the ultimate evening of fine dining and dancing to welcome in 2012.
Picosa’s chef, who will be dedicated to you during your stay, can grill scrumptious Texas steaks, lobster and more for your dining pleasure. Guests are contacted before they arrive to create menus with all their favorites and to have the cabinets stocked with their favorite between meal snacks. Caviar or other snacks at midnight? Room service doesn’t close during your stay. The resort concierge will work with you to plan your personalized New Year’s party for one or many before you arrive. And everyone can walk to their rooms when they are ready to call it a night (or early morning).
If being in a crowd is what you want when the clock strikes midnight, one of the ranch chauffeurs can drive you into San Antonio for an evening out and whisk you safely back to the ranch when you are ready for solitude.
With average temperatures in January around 63 degrees, it is easy to enjoy the outdoors riding horses, going on an exotic animal photo safari, hiking, biking, learning to lasso or enjoying a hay ride.
“We are thrilled to now offer leisure guests the experience of this world-class Texas ranch. Our luxury accommodations and amenities are sure to provide guests an experience that lives in their memories forever,” notes Bubba Ammann, vice president of operations at Picosa Ranch and the grandson of Governor and Mrs. Connally, providing him with decades of knowledge on the land and the history of the property.
