    • Visit the Alamo in San Antonio
    • Houston’s museums and NASA Space Center
    • Live music in Austin


Days 1-2

UK to Dallas

Collect your car at the airport then spend a couple of days relaxing as you explore this modern city. Visit Southfork Ranch, made famous in the Dallas TV show, and learn about the assassination of JFK at the Sixth Floor Museum.

Days 3-4

Dallas to Houston

The city of Houston spreads out before you, home to a plethora of intriguing sites and neighbourhoods. Spend a day in the leafy Museum Quarter, enjoy the bars of Midtown, lose yourself shopping at the Galleria or head out to NASA’s Space Center Houston.

Day 5

Houston to San Antonio

As you drive inland a different side of Texas opens up. Gone are the modern cities, replaced by farmsteads and pastures that create Texas' famous ranch country. In the warm south of the state you will arrive into San Antonio.

Day 6

San Antonio

The city’s Mexican heritage is reflected in its food, its music and its architecture. The fantastic Riverwalk, lined with bars and restaurants, is both fun and scenic and just a short walk from the famous Alamo. There is also the historic Market Square to discover, where over 100 shops and stalls form what is known as the largest Mexican market outside of Mexico.

Days 7-8

San Antonio to Austin

State capital Austin is known as the live music capital of the world! A balmy climate and walkable downtown make Austin an easy and fun place to explore and a band, musician or singer can be found in almost every bar, coffee shop and restaurant.

Days 9-11

Austin to Fort Worth

Nowhere in Texas is cowboy heritage more apparent than in charming Fort Worth. Visit the Stockyards, where cattle drives and rodeos still take place today, and spend an evening at Billy Bob’s, a genuine Texan honky tonk.  Return your car to Dallas-Fort Worth airport ahead of your flight home.
