My mom and I are planning to get away for a long weekend next week - Friday through Monday, possibly taking a head start Thursday evening. We're based in Dallas and have made no reservations, so destination is open to suggestions. I definitely want to drive, and scenic roads are a plus. I have a new GPS I want to test out, so getting lost on weird roads is totally allowed. Anything I shouldn't miss out on? We like outdoorsy stuff, and off the highway adventures, farmers markets, festivals, and good food to name a few things!
-------Some places we considered were North Padre area, hill country, and santa fe. we decided santa fe would just be too far.
