Austin is one of the most interesting places I have ever lived. There are so many places to visit in Austin and the surrounding areas, but sometimes you want to get away and explore away from home. And who can pass up going on a road trip. After all, there is nothing better than stopping at the store to grab all your road trip goodies and hitting the road.
When we moved to Texas we couldn’t believe all the places we could go on a weekend trip. It’s probably one of the most diverse and eclectic states in the USA.
Our favorite was that many of those places are not only friendly for families with smaller children, but also families with middle schoolers and teens.
