Texas Road Trip!

Texas Road Trip: Where to go on your next road trip.

texas road tripOnce we’ve got you paired with your perfect VW from Lewisville VW, there’s no better way to celebrate than to take a Texas road trip! Roads through our vast and varied state start right outside your back door and can lead you through gorgeous, changing terrain to adventures you never knew you could find so close to home.

With a little planning, your Texas road trip can be the adventure of a lifetime. Texas is a massive state, so make sure your plans are in line with reality – it may make a little more sense to explore one section of the state than to spread yourself too thin. Leave yourself time to enjoy the sites!

Central Texas

texas road tripExplore the central Texas Hill Country with an eye for outdoor adventure. Here you can find steep crags for climbing, prime fishing holes, even a little equestrian action. According to National Geographic, a 285-mile loop starting and ending in Austin lets you experience the best of the Hill Country in four days. Stay in style at Gruene Mountain Inn and its next-door historic Gruene Dance Hall, enjoy a little cowboy style at Hill Country Equestrian Lodge, and check out Fredericksburg’s unique Hangar Hotel, featuring views of Cessna landings from the attached observation deck. Fish your heart out, explore the hills on horseback, get a crash course in rock climbing, and enjoy the open road with your windows (or the top) down for a long weekend, Texas style.

East Texas

Have a love of history? A little exploration of East Texas might be just the ticket for you. All Getaways suggests four scenic drives through East Texas, ranging from the 18-mile Big Thicket Natural Preserve Scenic Drive to the 54-mile scenic stretch between Daingerfield State Park and Caddo Lake State Park. Tailor the length of your trip to the time you have allotted for your vacation… check out one, two, or all four routes for a tailor-made East Texas adventure.

Big Thicket Natural Preserve is a gravel-and-pavement drive with opportunities to get out and hike. Spend a couple hours or a couple days wandering the stunningly diverse floral habitats of Big Thicket, where the vegetation can change from one footstep to the next. The Daingerfield-to-Caddo route is gorgeous any time of year, but the fall season brings out the glorious color of Daingerfield’s autumn foliage and the shadowy mystery of Caddo Lake’s cypress-studded shores. In between, check out historic steel town Lone Star, Lake O’ the Pines, and the historic charm of the city of Jefferson.

South Texas

Explore the glories of south Texas and the Gulf Coast in your new VW in the summertime. Let the ocean breezes blow your hair back as you roll through the Coastal Bend or take a ferry to drive the Mustang and Padre barrier islands. All Getaways suggests several routes through the coastal region, including a 40-mile route from Surfside Beach to Galveston and a 56-mile swath through Rockport and Port Aransas. Connect the dots to explore the whole of the Texas Gulf shores or pick a shorter trip and dedicate your time to sand and surf between your VW jaunts.

These are just a few of the gorgeous backdrops Texas has to offer your next vacation. Check out the mountains of West Texas or the canyons of the Panhandle to round out your trip.
