  1. Default Beat the Texas heat!

    Any ideas for a weekend summer road trip from San Antonio to anywhere cooler, within 5-6 hrs.? Hill Country destinations? Lakes?

    Default Higher, Drier, Norther

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Your best shot at finding cooler, drier weather at any given time is to head north up to the Abilene/Sweetwater area. That not only gets you farther north and gains you a bit in elevation but also gets you into a slightly ]drier climate. But to be honest, I don't think that any of that will buy you a sensible difference in the heat index,

    Are there any cave tours in that area?

    I would suggest Carlsbad Caverns, but the drive from San Antonio is somewhat longer than 5-6 hours.
