Lake Lavon next to the town is a 22,000-acre reservoir formed by damming the east fork of the Trinity River. Along with its shoreline, there are four major parks near Princeton, making it a favorite destination for tourists and residents alike. There are also all types of recreational activities, from swimming to boating and fishing.
If you’ve ever wanted to fly with the birds, head to North Princeton where Future Flight, LLC gives you the chance to ride a Powered Parachute (PPC) for some low and slow flying – from 10 to 1000 ft. In business since 1984, the staff at Future Flight are experts and will take you over the scenic shoreline of Lake Lavon and the countryside of North Texas.
But if you prefer to ride closer to the ground, you can visit the Heritage Hill Equestrian Center, which offers affordable horseback riding lessons, trail rides, and even a horseback riding summer camp. The owner and staff are all helpful and very friendly so that learning will be a breeze for anyone!
