Hi guys! My sister and I will be travelling the US soon, and was just wondering if anybody had any recommendations in Texas?
We land in Austin in mid-October, and we've got a few places we want to visit, and thought I'd see if any experienced trekkers wanted to give a few suggestions!
We want to spend a few days in Austin and San Antonio, and we want to hit Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington too. We're also thinking of heading west to go to Carlsbad Caverns NP in NM, and were debating over whether to take the detour to Big Bend NP?
We're not hugely interested in museums or political history (though we will be going to see the Alamo), but would love to see a variety of things, from the nightlife and urban cities to the ghost towns and rural areas, along with any NPs. So, hit us with any suggestions of where to go, what to see and do, what routes to take, where to stay, where to eat... all and any advice from seasoned travellers!
As for length of time... we hadn't quite decided yet. Looking at a week to a fortnight, we're still working on a rough budget, and what will be the best way to go about what to see!
Thanks in advance!
