Make Texas your next road trip destination!

Plotting the perfect road trip is an art form, especially if you’re hoping to visit a variety of destinations. If you're hitting the road in a vehicle of your own, we recommend checking out these Texas locales to get a real taste of everything the Lone Star State has to offer.

El Paso, Texas

No matter what your interests, El Paso’s got you covered. With a great mix of unique culture and natural beauty, you can enjoy canyon climbing one day and a trip to the art museum the next. Whatever your plans, make sure to take a break from your favorite RV recipes and explore the delicious Texas BBQ scene.

San Antonio, Texas

Remember the Alamo? San Antonio clearly has a rich historical background, but you might not realize the extent of its beautiful landscape, which includes Mission Reach, a woodland ecosystem we don’t recommend skipping. The city of San Antonio even has their own specialty dish—the puffy taco. Set up camp at the San Antonio KOA RV campground and explore everything this great Texas city has to offer.

Big Bend National Park

Not one for city life? Big Bend National Park in southwest Texas is an outdoor refuge for campers and nature lovers. At Big Bend, you’ll have the chance to take day hikes through the desert, awe-inspiring scenic drives through the park, and river trips alongside limestone canyons. Park your RV and get ready for a big adventure!

South Padre Island, Texas

If you’re a snowbird trying to escape the cold weather or a family hoping to enjoy some time on the water, there’s no better place than South Padre Island in Texas. Wildlife aficionados will love the chance to scuba dive in the Gulf of Mexico and go birding at the South Padre Island Nature Center, while your younger visitors may be more interested in sandcastle lessons on the beach. There really is something for everyone!

It’s true what they say: everything is bigger in Texas. Make sure to check out these destinations and more on your next RV road trip to Texas!
