The outdoors: fresh air, piney woods, escape. THE GETAWAY is the Single Adults Retreat at Allaso Ranch in Hawkins, Texas. It is one of the highlights of the year as we detach from city life and enjoy a time of connection and renewal. It's not hard to enjoy a weekend of horseback riding, zip line, high ropes, canoes, kayaks, frisbee golf, campside fire, and more. Register today for the November 5-7 retreat!
