Recreation & LeisureRoyse City Has Something For Everyone!
Activities in Nearby Rockwall
Rockwall sits on the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard, offering a host of lake-oriented activities such as fishing, sailing, boating and water-skiing. The Harbor, right on the lake, is a great place to enjoy beautiful sunsets, concerts and many other events. Fountains, walkways, docks and lots of green spaces offer enjoyment for everyone. If you enjoy skiing or boarding you should be able to find some calm water on either side, depending on which way the wind is blowing, of the I-30 bridge. Fishing is best at the north end of the lake in any of the many arms where there is plenty of standing timber. One of the best live music events is “Concerts on the Lake,” free concerts every Thursday from late April through September. More information and a schedule is available at the website: www.rockwalllivemusic.com
