Self-drive Holidays

This 13-day self-drive tour turns Texas upside down as you take a round-trip from Fort Worth via Austin, San Antonio, and the barrier islands of the Gulf Coast. Hold onto your ten-gallon cowboy hat as this has got legendary road trip branded all over it. There’s plenty to pack in as you head out on the highways and pull over for breakfast tacos on route to a series of two-night stopovers. From honkytonk bars and line dancing halls to Victorian-era architecture and wildflower dotted hillsides, this is your chance to experience the Lone Star State from a first-hand perspective. Life on the road allows you to pull over where you like and visit small towns to get an authentic dose of Texas charm and hospitality. It’s up to you to decide the pace based around your own personal interests as well as how long you’d like to spend behind the wheel. Stopping for a couple of nights in the Gulf Coast resort of Galveston gives you a break by the beach before you hit the road to Houston via the NASA Johnson Space Center. If you’re looking to uncover the Lone Star State, this is the most affordable and flexible way to do just that.
