5) TEXAS HILL COUNTRY Texas is a big state and a lot of it can be really dull driving. But the Texas Hill country is compact and offers a variety of towns to stop in and visit, eat BBQ, go antique shopping and enjoy state and national parks. There are a lot of different options for exploring the Hill Country, so check out your map and trace a route out of Austin or San Antonio. Make sure to visit Kerrville and Fredericksburg. Along Hwy 281 you’ll find Spring Branch, Blanco State Park, and Pedernales Falls State Park. Also just off 281 is Black Rock Park and further north is Colorado Bend State Park.
