1st time to Texas

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are currently looking to visiting Texas July/August this year for 2 weeks and would like some help in planning.

We are a family of 3 that will be travelling from England (flying into Houston) and so far we have looked at Arlington, San Antonio and Austin.

As we will have been travelling for more than 15 hours we don't want to drive too far from the airport upon arrival but want somewhere that we can get food, perhaps just a burger and not a full meal and obviously somewhere to stay.

Husband and son want to have a tour of the Cowboy Stadium hence the desire to go to Arlington. We also want to go to the Texas Rangers baseball game so will schedule that in either at the start or end of the vacation depending on their schedule.

Our son is quite a keen golfer and wouldn't mind playing whilst out there too.

How long do you recommend staying at each city and do you have any hotel/restaurant recommendations?

Do you also have any advice on driving in Texas? Are there toll roads or roads to avoid?

Many apologies for lots of questions :)
