If you’re already in Terlingua, you might as well make the 8-hour drive via US Hwy 285 N to New Mexico!
Another one of my favorite weekend getaways from Austin is the small, quaint Texan town of Wimberley. Don’t miss Jacob’s Well and Blue Hole while you’re there.
I just went to San Antonio for a quick day trip at the beginning of the year and was impressed by how much The Pearl area has developed.
I did a mini vacay to Corpus Christi last summer to stay at Lively Beach and loved the beach getaway.
Salado is a small town located just north of Austin and I would recommend this historic site for a weekend getaway when the weather is cooler.
I love NOLA, especially in early February or the fall. Explore its vibrant culture, indulge in delicious cuisine, and immerse yourself in the rich history of this historic site.
