If you haven't decided yet on your destination for a Memorial Day Weekend road trip, this will serve as some inspiration.  The Riverwalk in San Antonio is a spot everyone seems to know about, but there are some hidden gems here too.

San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, and Austin get a lot of the attention, but we like the spots off-the-beaten path spots in East Texas too.  Like the Texas State Railroad between Rusk and Palestine.  Or Lake Sam Rayburn, or Nacogdoches (The Oldest Town in Texas), or the Tyler roses.  East Texas has plenty to do!

Some of the top places to visit in Texas include the State Capitol, Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, The Alamo, Space Center Houston, Moody Gardens, and Natural Bridge Caverns in San Antonio.

And Memorial Day Weekend is the perfect time to hit them.  If you're not in the back yard barbecuing, that is!
