Hit the Road
Map out your next Texas road trip with these destination spotlights
As winter lifts and beautiful spring weather spreads across Texas, we're all feeling the urge to pack up the car and head off to explore.
The wanderlust is especially real in Texas, which spans nearly 800 miles east to west, and more than 800 miles north to south.
That's a lot to discover, especially when you consider all the tiny towns and big cities that make up the Lone Star State — not to mention the hundreds of years of history contained in each stop.
To help navigate your way across, we're introducing Texas Road Trips, a series of articles that dive deep into the one-of-a-kind destinations found throughout our state.
Track down the best barbecue joints (hint: there's more than one), explore the museums that tell Texas' unique stories, savor your way through several taco trails, and seek out natural wonders that range from surfside to cliffside.
During your trip you'll uncover a vast landscape of cultures, regions, destinations, and activities, making each excursion unique.
Find exactly the right experience for you and your travel companions ... and maybe jot down a few ideas for your next trip, while you're at it.
Keep an eye out for these articles , and remember that — just like Texas destinations — no two trips are alike, but they are all spectacular.
