Fun Road Trip Destinations in Texas 

Summer is the time for kicking back and having fun, and what could be more fun than taking an adventure-filled road trip?  Plus, there are some amazing places to visit in Texas.  Here are some of our favorite road trip destinations in Texas. 

Outer cathedralCascade Caverns 

This beautiful and natural cave is simply breath-taking.  Located just outside of San Antonio, you can cool off from the summer sun with a 45-minute tour of the all of the amazing different rock formations that have formed over many years.  It’s a perfect destination for the summer since the caverns only reach about 64-degrees, so you can escape the Texas heat.  Plus, there are over 100 campsites and plenty of amenities for a fun weekend of camping. 

Corpus Christi 

If you’re a beach and ocean fan, then this is definitely a place you need to stop at during your road trip.  You can relax on one of the many beaches, visit one of the ports or islands, enjoy the museums like the USS Lexington battle ship or spend a day at the Texas State Aquarium.  And you can even camp on the beach with one of the available oceanfront campsites.  There is so much to do here, you may not want to leave.
